In Nermin Kura’s sensual ceramics, enlarged and imaginary flowers burst forth, as in Moon Slippers (2015, glazed 2018, estimate: £5,000-7,000). Glazed entirely in glossy white, it unfurls like an orchid, at once curved and triangular. Upon each of the three cascading petals sits a distinctively shaped bud. Moon Slippers evokes the same fascination with a bodily, organic beauty as Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings......Leonie Mir, Director, Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art.

Remarkably attractive and elegant work, with a touch of Cinderella courting the scene.
