Macabre porcelain babes by Jessica Harrison.
An amazing Scottish artist Jessica Harrison has created a series of delicate princess like porcelain figurines that have an unique macabre twist about them – from being covered in sailor tattoos to being straight up decapitated.
A piece from her artist statement:
Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle. Working with this moving space between artist/maker and viewer, she draws on the active body in both making and interpreting sculpture to unravel imaginative touch and proprioceptive sensation in sculptural practice. In this way, Harrison re-describes the body in sculpture through the skin, offering an alternative way of thinking about the body beyond a binary tradition of inside and outside.
What do you think? Wouldn’t this make for an incredible DIY project?<3
