Completed in my second year of university, this NML (National Museums Liverpool) project was my first commission in which I was requested to study a range of artifacts from the Walker’s design collection and draw inspiration from them to assist me in creating my own contemporary object. I was inspired by the elaborate detail of a couple of artifacts I was presented with and I chose to study 18th century design and its decorative qualities. My work is based on the spiralling curves and nature influenced motifs found in French Rococo design, and aims to mimic whilst simplifying the Rococo style. My ceramic jug was selected to be exhibited at The Walker Art Gallery in 2015.
