Katharine Morling is just as
innovative but her medium of choice is porcelain. Her works often fool
the eye into thinking they are made from paper because of their delicacy
and intricacy, and their monochrome appearance.
London-based artist Katharine Morling creates awesome ceramic sculptures that look like life-size sketches of everyday objects, which she describes as ‘three-dimensional drawings’.
“The black and white flat illustrations on each white ceramic item give it a curious sense of being both two and three-dimensional at the same time. The trompe l’oeil effect forces the viewer’s perspective to see the objects in multiple contexts.”
The simple rendering style belies the complexity of each piece - a camera bag with pockets overflowing with gear, an old-timey cash register with cash and coins spilling out of the drawer, a chest of drawers full of pinned insect specimens. There are so many pieces and parts, but take away the black lines and each one is simply a piece of white ceramic.
