Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The Ceramic Regurgitant forms part of a developing and on-going area of investigation into the employment of the ceramic readymade within contemporary practice. Through both practical and theoretical application, ‘The Ceramic Regurgitant’ examines the use and significance of the readymade in relation to both a sustainable approach to ceramics and the notion of conceptual ceramics as a discreet arena. This work explores approaches to making/unmaking and the changing nature of process and application within contemporary practice. Aligned to this is the re-contextualization of the ceramic readymade and its position within the canon of applied art/craft practice. The published conference paper ‘The Ceramic Regurgitant: Sustainability and the Readymade’ extends this observation through theoretical critique examining both historical and contemporary adaption and influence.
