Anne Murray Earthenware: "Recycling"

I came across Anne's work via Flickr and was instantly taken with her earthenware pieces. I immediately emailed Anne about her work and this is what she had to say:

I am currently a 3rd year student at Glasgow School of Art and am finding my way with ceramics. The objects you may be speaking of are made of earthenware and are decorated with decals for a current project I am working on.

The challenge is to make a tableservice for a restaurant. These are test pieces, exploring 'recycling', on my way to making the final work. The theme is 'recycling' in it's broadest sense, reusing crockery in another way eg old shapes with new decoration, new shapes with old decoration (that is what the red and white ones are), 'found' objects made into decals and merged with the body of the clay.

These are not currently for sale but with the interest I've received I may consider creating an etsy site next year. The final project will be on show in Aberdeen, Scotland in March; Kesckemet, Hungary in April 2008 and at MUSA - Art and music cafe, Aberdeen, Scotland, in the Summer 2008.

I, for one, absolutely love this collection of work and can't wait to see more from Anne. For those interested in keeping up with Anne's work you can view more via her flickr site or read more via her blog. Definitely ones to bookmark! Enjoy!
