CERAMICS - ABOUT + EXHIBITIONS

 

About Ceramics  

2012-2015

 

These ceramics stem from my interest in landscape and the environment, I went to places I could reach using pedal power from where I live in Bristol, ending up photographing industrial areas and landscapes along the river Seven. As I did this I became interested in the idea of NIMBY-ism, that the industrial landscapes and infrastructure that I found were fine as long as they were 'Not In My Back Yard'. I used the images that I had taken on these rides to make ceramic transfers, these have been fired onto the surfaces of original Victorian pieces, modern plain commercial porcelain and most recently slip cast porcelain bottles and cups. The forms for the slip cast pieces come from commercially produced bottles. In these pieces the industrial and the domestic collide, I hope that they reflect upon the provenance of objects and the conflicted relationship between creativity and mass production.
