These are from her series Finest Paperware. This work questions our throwaway culture. She builds this with cast sheets of specially formulated paperclay. These works are a derivative of traditional ceramics, "the ‘Jasperware’ version emulates Wedgewood’s iconic range using stained porcelain slip and embossed relief details in white. And the Dutch classic ‘Blue Delft’ is alluded to in digital decals scanned from hand drawn decals in blue biro." These really do look like paper cups, yet are much more beautiful and engaging. Maybe it's the gold varnish?
