Nomad Patterns – Melted Ceramic Creations by Livia Marin
Nomad Patterns is a series by Livia Marin which features more than thirty ‘melted’ China cups, vases, and teapots. It was exhibited at the Eagle Gallery in London in 2012. Interestingly, each piece retains its pattern even though it’s melted. The patterns in the pieces is the Willow Pattern motif. A pastiche of Chinese landscape decoration created by the British in the late 1700s. According to Livia, “the objects appear as staged somehow indeterminately between something that is about to collapse or has just been restored; between things that have been invested with the attention of care but also have the appearance of a ruin.”
