Flatback Figures

 

 

Recalling traditional Staffordshire mantelpiece ornaments, these unique ceramic figures are crafted from many different casts of contemporary packaging and discarded domestic ephemera. Traditional Staffordshire glazes with colours derived from natural oxides are used to reference their place in ceramic history. Juxtaposed with modern surface details, these Flatbacks quietly reveal their contemporary creation.
