Katherine Morley

“Egg Series, Lamps and Vases” Capacity 2011

I enjoy allowing my curiosity to feed my practice, and in this case, I was inspired by the capacity of a mundane object to become elevated, to change and surprise us. As an environmentally aware, egg-loving, ceramicist, it seemed perfectly natural to wonder what an egg– with its porcelain-like composition, lush natural colours and patterns– would look like lit up, and I was not disappointed. Eggs are much stronger and crack resistant than one would think, and glow with a satisfying richness. Also… they were delicious.

In this waste-filled world, this projects reminds us to ask ourselves: can’t we do more with the things that already surround us?
