First introduced in 2006, this is my longest running line of dishware, which is still made to order throughout the year. Hand-built earthenware, decorated in soft pastels act as the backdrop for a variety of imagery; vintage etchings, instructional images, original photos and once in awhile, a collaboration with a talented illustrator. This range of screenprinted plates has has been featured in several international exhibitions, yet is fully functional and intended for daily use. Available in the shop.
This line of work was created during my first residency at Medalta Potteries in 2011. An inspiring month and my first introduction to the immense collection of vintage ceramics at this historic site. My interest in Canadian imagery and identity drew me to reinterpret these classic Hycroft designs in a contemporary style and explore the historical ephemera of the factory itself. I still use these prints every once in awhile – see what’s currently available here.
