In the Garden

2021

H 48cm x W 41cm x D 18 cm

Glazed earthenware and mixed media

 

Flower brick based on Ingres’ painting the Grande Odelisque. The  verse on the base is by 16th century female Turkish poet Fitnat Hanim.

The sides feature the phrase “You and I are Earth”. This comes from delftware plates made to exchange with loved ones during the plague in London in 1665
