Appropriated Ceramics  

2012-2013

 

These are the first ceramics that I worked with, there is a high failure rate when refiring antique ceramics – you loose more than half in the kiln

 

These ceramic pieces are mostly vintage Victorian porcelain, which has been modified by the addition of hand printed ceramic decals, they have then been fired to make the additions permanent and the pieces usable. In these pieces the industrial and the domestic collide. I hope that the work raises questions about the provenance of objects and the cost of our obsession with newness
