salon familiar

by Grace Bonney

i’m a sucker for ceramics so i’m loving this ceramic installation by artist molly hatch. titled ‘salon familiar’ the show is a compilation of functional plates, platters and cups (all made from porcelain) hanging on porcelain ‘frames’ handmade by molly. molly’s goal was to elevate the everyday ceramics we use and consider them the way we could consider fine art hanging on the wall at a gallery. if you’re interested in the drawings on each piece, they were created with a traditional inlay technique called ‘mishima‘. for more information on molly’s work click here.
