hey! at your highschool did they ever have you pass your paper to the left or whatever to have another student see if you were right? I always hated that…it made me feel stupid to have someone I went to school with see how wrong I was. I know this is years over due, way past the point, etc, etc, but…at the same time…why would a teacher have our peers do that to other students? was it to embarrass us to do better or were they just that lazy?
Surgically Altered Ceramics by Beccy Ridsdel
UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.
