I Loved You All Day
In this series porcelain tea cups have been carved from plaster on the lathe, their handles intricately carved by hand, before being moulded and cast in a fine white liquid parian porcelain. The shapes reference those of Nantgarw and Swansea porcelain from the 19th century in Wales. The heat of the kiln chamber has been used to seek out moments of fluidity. Spoons containing a precise balance of porcelain and flux are caught mid pour in the heat of the kiln chamber.
Within this series of I Loved You All Day, I have momentarily pressed the pause button; spoons filled to the brim and overflowing are fixed in mid air, flowing liquid caught mid drip. The whiteness and stillness of these forms is intended to elicit what is absent, our interior experience – the unsettling, intimate and tender – our sensory memory.
