Who is the table set for?

Yvette De Lacy 'who is the table set for' detail with extra elements

I have been playing around with dinnerware that have sculptural elements included. This piece is a reflection of our throwaway consumerist society and the impact of that on the natural environment that we live in.

Photos of work

It is funny how selling your ceramics online works. You can’t just take a photo anymore, it has to tell a story or impart a certain mood. It is hard to get this right, without looking too staged or pretentious. My general set up is an old wood box or the wooden studio floor and some native flora. This photo is a little dark and there is a bit of shine reflected from the window. But I only have so much time to take photos, so this has to do. I have tried the white background with big paper sheets but I don’t think it suits my work and I find it hard to keep clean in a ceramic studio.
