keep calm and carry on

I LOVE this work by aussie ceramic artist Mel Robson!! These are pieces from a recent exhibition at the Jan Manton gallery called “keep calm and carry on”.

“Mel Robson’s work explores the relationship between utilitarian objects and personal narrative. It has evolved from an interest in the histories, stories and associations embedded in everyday objects and the ways in which these objects can evoke memory and nostalgia. Imagery from the domestic landscape – maps, letters, sewing patterns, old wallpaper, photographs, documents etc – are applied to eggshell fine porcelain vessels. Sometimes the imagery is drawn from Robson’s own past, and sometimes it is a response to the stories of others. They serve as narrative groupings referencing the tenuous and fragile ways in which we can access the past.”
