Danske Spor. Ôl. Trace.

A Danish Breakfastware set (Coffee Cup & Plate).

This body of work was created in Denmark, during my time in Guldagergaard International Ceramics Research Centre, and is site-specific to the market-town of Skaelskor.

Upon visiting Denmark, I have noticed that similarities occur between the rural communities here and my home country, Wales, where industrial change is prominent both socially and economically. Through researching local industries, that through time have changed and developed, I found aspects of this change intriguing and wanted to reflect their current position in society, as well as revealing their active, traditional past through the aid of modern technology, 3D and transfer printing. This notion of continuation, development and change is reflected through the constant presence and use of Danish breakfast serving ware.

The pieces themselves are cast from Royal Copenhagen Porcelain, with 3D Printed handles (Cups) & cast Plates with corresponding Digital transfer imagery.
