Code Cobalt Saint Cloche
Via Saint Cloche
Milly has taken part in 7 group showings at Saint Cloche, and three solo. Milly has recently returned from an Art Residency in Jingdezhen, the birthplace of porcelain in the world some 2000 years ago, after completing artist residency with the support of the Ian Potter Cultural Trust. Milly is Interested in China’s rich porcelain history and its influence on contemporary practice.
“Code Cobalt is a series of striking porcelain vases I crafted on my recent residency in Jingdezhen, China. Those days in the China heat, working in communal studios, walking to public kilns to fire work, and meeting local artists seems like something of a distant memory. I was meant to be currently pursuing my second residency in this birthplace of porcelain.
In Code Cobalt I use striking glassy Jingdezhen glazes on profiles inspired by traditional Chinese vessel and vase forms. Each vessel is connected to their shadow, which was traced and cast into a porcelain slab at certain times of the day. The vases themselves appear squashed flat, and invites the viewer to question their own assumptions of depth and distance.”
