New Work - Ceramics

Nicola Tassie - Sweet Dreams

This presentation demonstrates how the crossover between the painted image and mark making in clay is a continuing preoccupation in her practice.

These wall-mounted ‘slip pillows’ playfully evoke a painted canvas on the wall, and present us with a contemporary dialogue about ceramics as art, and not just as objects.

Her use of slip trailing and feathering - a delicate technique - is rooted in the tradition of early slipware from the 17th and 18th centuries, yet also references the influence of graffiti ‘tags’ today.
