"After the Bather's" is a body of work created for the National Gallery of Victoria Design Store. I was commissioned to make a range of wares based on Edgar Degas’ work being exhibited at the gallery. In this range I created fluid, curved, asymmetrical shapes that were chosen as a reflection of the human body in unusual positions that Degas explored in his later work, “The Bather’s”. This series explores in particular his work of woman bathing, and his soft romantic colour palate and peach nude tones in contrast to the blacks.
