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.

We need more practice.
This is a difficult but enjoyable hobby.We have renewed high respect for calligraphers and illuminators. They must have a lot of patience and large rubber lungs. While practicing calligraphy, one barely breathes.
That T is wonderful!
