Milk Plate
Photographer: Bridget Harvey
This plate was mended through a tradition technique, using the glue-like properties of casein in milk.
Super Glue Plate
Photographer: Bridget Harvey
A traditional plate mended in a standard way, using super glue. I left the overflow of glue to show the material and process of repair on the surface.
Wire Plate
Photographer: Bridget Harvey
This smashed floral plate is loosely held in place using gardening wire. The pattern of the wire references Korean wire twisting techniques, and the wobbly looseness mimics the autonomy of plants.
