Eight box set of slip-cast porcelain with ceramic transfer prints.
Made for the Treasures from the Thames exhibition currently at Southwark Cathedral, Raewyn Harrison's 16th Century Agas Map series, from Paris Garden (now Waterloo Bridge) to London Bridge represents London's rich and varied history.
This collection of boxes will be available to collect from the Cathedral in mid-January 2021 when the Treasures from the Thames exhibition comes down.
Raewyn Harrison is a London based ceramic artist who grew up in New Zealand. She creates porcelain collections with a strong narrative based on sites and structures that fascinate her. Her trademark dribble edges are combined with her own glazes that fragment images, making each piece unique.
The river Thames is a constant source of inspiration which led to the creation of her Mud Larking* series. She collects fragments from the foreshore, delves into archives for historical maps, and goes on expeditions to take photographs of decommissioned structures in the Thames Estuary
