Concept of artwork 設計理念:

During a residency in 2019, I was able to practice in a porcelain factory in Jingdezhen, China. Immersed in the factories production line and working alongside the craftspeople I found myself responding to the process and techniques used to create the work in the factory. In my practice I investigation the emotional response evoked from my collection of childhood ornaments and the ways in which identity and memory are often imbued upon cherished toys and personal souvenirs, many of the objects in my collection would have been created in factories like this one. Responding to my love of these objects and now seeing them made from start to finish, passing through the many hands of the craftspeople on the factory line I developed a greater understanding of the care, perfectionism and technical skill required to make even the simplest cast figurine. The hours of labour applied is overwhelming; however, the many discarded casts that do not make the grade evoked feelings of a foreboding but nostalgic emotion. Upon collecting these factory rejects and incorporating them into my pots, I have attempted to celebrate the many lost hours and labours of love with these Waste Not Pots.

其他說明:

I am an Australian artist based in Sydney. My practice has spanned sculpture and installation with a particular focus on ceramics. I am currently studying a Masters of Fine Arts at the National Art School in Sydney. In my current practice, I employ the traditional techniques of cake decorating as the main form of construction. Using Porcelain to replace the royal icing. I have developed a way of working that has allowed me to create forms that seem to defy their own making. Releasing the decorative detail from a foundation or form usually needed for adherence or an anchor point for attachment. I am interested in exploring the personal, domestic and intimate associations of craft based techniques and processors, striving to create a process-oriented practice for myself. These artworks were made with the permission of Franz Inc.

very beautiful celebration of skill and making good from waste...

I really enjoy the concept of this work, I feel the concept is very strong. As this work appears to be very well made the aesthetics are complex and highly decorative and they don't best represent or communicate the concept strongly.

It is a work of colorful decoration by skilled techniques.
