Festival: 2022

Michaela Haynes Sustainable Designer/Maker/Artist:

I have made 100 ceramic torsos using paper clay strips, like bandages, after reading a statistic on the Women’s Aid website;
“On average the police in England and Wales receive over 100 calls relating to domestic abuse every hour. (HMIC, 2015)”
In this new body of work I chose a low firing white opaque glaze, which crazed after firing, beautifully revealing the cracks and flaws.
I have emphasised these with different coloured inks.
On each torso I have hand drawn flower sketches with ceramic pen and numbered out of 100 on the back.
