Salt & pepper set by Anne Butler
This lovely salt & pepper set is made from porcelain, using the light and shadows cast in the urban environment as inspiration. Abstract marks of coloured porcelain are transferred onto thin sheets of porcelain, which are then cut, layered, assembled. The translucent quality of porcelain evidences this making process and allows the shadows of layers to be seen. Many years in Asia has also influenced the work. The Japanese aesthetics and sentiments regarding natural transience, distortion and fallibility of material and process is evident in the work.
