Wedgwoodn’t Tureen by Michael Eden

Chosen by Shane RJ Walter, Co-founder/Creative Director of onedotzero

We ask makers, curators, designers, creative practitioners and the Crafts Council team to select their favourite object from the Crafts Council Collection and to tell us why.

Shane RJ Walter, Co-founder/Creative Director of international moving image and digital arts organisation onedotzero, says

 

Eden blurs traditional ceramic craft skills with an appetite for digital tools and technology. He has created a freshly iconic piece for today in conversation with the past. In one pot he has hyperlinked two revolutions, leaping from the industrial 1800s to the digital 2000s with a sense of wit and adventurous bravado. The result is a bold contemporary work that shape-shifts between pottery and product design via art and architecture. Brilliant in its mix of heritage and modernity, innovation and history, the tureen is a striking piece that at once attracts your eye then grabs your mind and finally plays with your heart.
