Raewyn has made porcelain casts from Mudlark and Author, Lara Maiklem’s and Archaeologist, Mike Webbers collections.
Everyday objects from previous Londoners lives that were found in Thames mud are celebrated as treasure by casting them in one of the most precious clays.
Each cast has a small hook attached on the back for hanging.
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.
