The Porcelain Muse

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

 

‘The Porcelain Muse’ is a series of one-of-a-kind minaudières featuring three-dimensional porcelain face casts, reimagining the classical art of portraiture through the vision of a contemporary accessory designer. The project seeks to align a sense of tradition with the present through a unique, artisan sensibility to create an innovative, luxury fashion product. 

INSPIRATION

 

The tradition of portraiture as a recurrent art form dating all the way to antiquity. The putative face mask of L’Inconnue de la Seine, a widely reproduced objet d’art from late 19th century Paris and ultimately, the perpetual spirit of women, their struggles & strengths.

 

MATERIALS USED

 

Porcelain. Amaco Jet Black Matte Underglaze, Clear Crackled Glaze, Jade Green Mason Stain, Gold Plated Brass, Leather.
