These wall hangings present Lydia’s Tessellating Cups as a decorative array of mutiple slip cast elements. This work builds on themes explored in Lydia’s earlier study, Tactile Perception and her fascination with geometry, colour and pattern.
The frames have been handmade to Lydia’s exacting designs, featuring a mitred front edge, leading you directly into the piece. The backboard, which itself is set forward to showcase the work, features a shallow recess for each cup with sit within: a secondary frame to each special ceramic piece.
These pieces were on exhibition at Thrown Contemporary in Highgate throughout 2018.
Large Frame: £2400
My First Year As A Ceramicist
The most personal work available here is the largest piece, ‘My First Year as a Ceramicist’, which presents many of the trials and triumphs of a self-taught ceramicist, that often come from the unpredictable but thrilling craft of combining clay, glaze and extreme heat.
Each component is of value to her; a lesson and a laugh contained within each tiny cup. Presented together in this large, colourful, tessellating arrangement, each piece falling into place as design intended, their flaws become celebrated as part of the whole display, providing character, delight and tactility to the piece, as the eye explores it.
Small Frames: £975 each.
Blue and Neutral Tones
These next two pieces focus on evoking an overall colour tone, through the use of these individual modules, which each present their own detail in surface and glaze. Each cup becomes akin to a pixel, playing with its neighbours and as part of the whole, to bring together an overall impression of colour, tone and mood. Similarly with the large frame, these works are Limited Edition, as the only versions of these works to be created.
