Porcelain punished by Montreal based artist Laurent Craste who sez of his ceramic snuff:

I regard the inventory of original models from the main 18th and 19th century European porcelain manufacturers and use these models as a basis for research on the status of the collectibles, by subjecting them to a practice of deconstruction and violent alteration of their formal structures, or by contaminating their traditional decorations through a subversive process of subject substitution.

Fair enough.

Animal sculptures wrapped in five-needle lace, handmade cotton crochet webbing by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. The animals are reproductions of oversized ceramic pieces by the 19th century Portuguese artisan Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905).

The idea being to one-up the works with an overlay of feminine domesticity, radicalising preconceived notions of modernism, tradition and motherhood.

Where is your God now?
