White labels

A couple of weeks ago I found myself in the basement at Bradford School of Arts & Media, experimenting in the ceramics workshop. As the snow was falling and the building became deserted I settled myself with a mug of tea, my notebook and a lump of porcelain clay. I was in my element. I found it intriguing to be working with a different material, like speaking a different language somehow. A material that has a memory and 'remembers how you handle it'; a material that can be chalky like plaster or translucent like skin.

Rolled, turned, rolled and turned.
Smoothed and re-rolled.
Cut to size.
A series of labels,
numbered and dated,
from smooth white porcelain.

I have loved working with the porcelain and learning about how it behaves. This weekend I added the finishing touches with a little blueprint. The porcelain labels will form the finishing touches for my installation 'Linear Mapping', part of the Pinpoint II exhibition, which I hang this week.


  1. They're really beautiful Hannah x

  2. Thanks folks, glad you like them. I will post images of the finished work very soon. Let me know what you think.

  3. How lovely! May I ask: was the porcelain fired prior to the Cyanotype process?
