I have a soft spot for ceramics, especially if they’re unorthodox. Kingston potter Marney McDiarmid perfectly fills the order with her translucent, fragile porcelain bowls. I think perhaps I’m so attracted to delicate, edgy ceramics because my mother’s generation was so into heavy, ugly quasi-Victorian dreck.
McDiarmid’s portfolio is particularly attractive because she often combines found objects, organic materials, text, stamps, photo transfer and decals to accomplish her messages. More on her website, here and at the Petroff Gallery, here. See The Junkie’s other ceramics posts here.
