The paper cup is an icon of the ‘throwaway culture’ and by imposing classical ceramic styling and transposing materials I aim to highlight and question our tendency towards wasteful consumerism.
One set is hand-built from cast sheets of specially formulated porcelain paperclay slip.
The other is hand-built from cast sheets of handmade paper. They come in two different styles derivitave of traditional ceramic aestheitics. The ‘Jasperware’ version emulates Wedgewood’s iconic range using stained porcelain slip and paper and embossed relief details in white. And the Dutch classic ‘Blue Delft’ is alluded to in hand drawn biro, and digital enamel decals scanned from the original drawings.
