"Beyond Vanity"

In choosing this particular theme, I hope to appeal to a younger generation of consumers who no longer collect rose patterned china as their mothers would have done. By conveying this type of imagery in an urban context; i.e. graffiti and pop art inspired, with bold colour usage, I’m hopefully appealing to that younger demographic.
I used this imagery as I find the combination aesthetically pleasing. It suitably conveys my perspective on life and death: inevitably everything comes to an end, and that life goes “Beyond Vanity”

The symbolic relationship between these images was deliberately designed to provoke a reaction from the audience. By utilising images of beetles and a stereotypical 1950’s American housewife in combination with original, digitally produced designs, these thought provoking ceramic collages were created.
