CONTEMPORARY SPINS ON BLUE AND WHITE CERAMICS
With the blue/white tradition running through the work as the only constant thread, these artists play with historical conventions and radical commentary.

Artwork

Valentine 2013 is inspired by the archeological discovery of a Neolithic couple embracing excavated on February 14th 2007. The work is a part of a larger series I call “Potters Field” that was part of the premise of my recent residency at the Victoria and Albert. This series emphasizes the life cycles of form and function as they relate to fashion and design- the backbones of world ceramic history- a body of knowledge that is also the history of us.
