Rose Wallace Ceramics


“Coffee Morning”



“In modern society, we buy so much but value so little. My ceramics aim to re-evaluate and challenge the notions of consumerism and ownership.


The discarded object, whether it be a vintage domestic item, a mudlarked find loaded with meaning, even a piece of plastic packaging are all relevant to my process; to make comment on mass consumerism within contemporary society. I employ the found object by first casting it to make a press mould. My Flatbacks narratives can be a time consuming process, made of anything up to fifty separate elements using Creamware, press moulded, animated and joined at the leather-hard stage.To reinforce the language of the past, I make my own lead-rich glazes from a traditional formula with high bisque, low glost firing. More recently, in addition to creating purely ceramic pieces, I have been drawn to making ceramic narratives which encompass the original object. I believe this loads the artwork with wider questions relating to consumerism with notions of authenticity status and ownership.
