Beautiful, bizarre ceramic works by Rebecca Wilson:
“Rebecca Wilson’s ceramics turn everyday items into a collage of pleasurable extravagance. She composes her ceramics by casting discarded knickknacks, most commonly found in charity shops and car boot sales, in luxurious porcelain and bone china.”
This provocative 14-piece porcelain coffee set was made in Spain by Antonio Murado exclusively for the New Museum. The crimson handprints and smears are an almost Baroque reflection on the act of consuming a meal. Each set includes 1 coffee pot, 1 creamer, 1 sugar bowl, 6 cups, and 6 saucers.
Jud Turner‘s latest sculpture, Lotus Eaters:
“My latest sculpture, ‘Lotus Eaters’, was inspired by characters from Homer’s Odyssey. The Lotophagi (lotus eaters) feed on a soporific plant which causes them to forget their homelands and live apathetic, uncaring lives. Their diet causes them to be sleepy and languid, as well as disinterested in the world around them. In my version, the lotus plants being consumed are media, depicted by the warped reflections of the 8 individuals gazing at themselves, further distorted and recorded by their repeated third-eye surveillance lenses.”
