BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Rebecca Hill

My practice is influenced by family heirlooms and why these objects become so special in our lives.

My research into family heirlooms, informed me that the most common heirlooms were objects originally given as wedding gifts or items acquired by a couple throughout their married life.  Exploring within the territory of heirlooms it revealed that traditionally tea sets along with cutlery and kitchen utensils were the most popular wedding gifts given.

Using porcelain as my main material has allowed me to explore more extensively into the rich territory of tea sets, a visit to the Victoria and Albert museum to view their ceramic collections helped to inform the direction that I wanted to pursue.

Working with the narrative of the traditional wedding saying ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a silver sixpence in her shoe’ each piece will make reference to old, new, borrowed, blue.
