nomad patterns

Chilean-born and London-based artist Livia Marin presents traditional ceramic objects in an unusual way – her cups, kettles and vases seem like they’re melting into puddles of patterned porcelain. The series, titled Nomad Patterns, demonstrates traditional Chinese landscape decorations and motifs like willows, birds and pagodas elaborately painted on running crockery.

The ceramicist says that, by using everyday objects, she tries “to enquire into the nature of how we relate to material objects in an era dominated by mass-production, standardization and global circulation.“
