Ceramic Book, 2017
Porcelain book cover with underglaze pencils and crayons
Watercolour painted and paper inserts
Showcasing now at the Barbican as part of the London Potters Association, Caroline Winn's ceramic and watercolour books are on display at London Potters' Showcase event at the Barbican Library from 31 March to 26 April.
The event features work from 30 London-based ceramicists.
Each one is hand-crafted combining porcelain with interior watercolour paintings. Constantly experimenting exploring the theme of traces, Caroline's books explore the earliest writings which were on clay. The linearity of the covers is a personal response to many different forms of early writings and encourage the viewer to read their own response into the images.
