"Granny Crockery" - Kate O'Connell

So, recently i discovered an artist called Kate O'Connell,
her ceramics was in Ceramic Review a few months ago.

I really like the way she takes useless pieces of smashed plates, and makes them functional.
I find the contrast of traditional plates such as the Willow pattern, and the modern quirkiness of the colours and sharp edges.

Although i don't condone smashing up plates, (on purpose).
i love the fact she has still managed to keep them functional.
Kate O'Connell also hand makes the bigger plates,by taking a piece of plate that has thoughtfully smashed into a graceful shape, and copies the shape to make it bigger and of course functional.
