Treasure Uncovered

Symbolic of an important time in Ceramic history, the collection bridges the gap between the past and the present, finding a new home in contemporary culture. The pieces speak of the highly prestigious Porcelain wares produced at the Royal Sevres Factory in the late 17th and 18th Centuries. Objets d’art produced there were so refined and tightly controlled they carried no visible suggestion of their material identity and so lavishly decorated that each detail was left in competition on the surface, striving to attract attention.

In contrast, through fresh interpretation the clay body and its material qualities are both elevated and celebrated. Worked in a dynamic and lively expression, textured and stripped back to highlight natural surface richnesses that have no need for further embellishment, each piece establishes a new dialogue between form and decoration. Surface treatments become part of the structure, whilst still referencing and paying homage to the originals, hinting at the decadent and the extraordinary, giving them a new lease of life.
