"Countries that cannot feed, clothe or educate their populations can find the money to buy weapons. How did all these guns get to Johannesburg? Who brought them in? Where did they come from?”
Surgically Altered Ceramics by Beccy Ridsdel
UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.

Loving the chain hoodies, jeweled encrusted gauntlets and gloves, page boy slippers, and endless capes. Really digging the embroidery details of the enchanted forest as well. These are what fairy tale dreams are made of. D&G you are truly an inspiration.
