Ceramic artist Beccy Risdel has a series called “Art / Craft” in which plates and mugs take on a totally odd sort of anatomy of their own.
The installation takes the form of an observation of a surgical experiment in progress. The ‘surgeon’ is dissecting the craft object to see what is within. He finds craft through and through. He tries the experiment again and again, piling up the dissected work, hoping to see something different but it is always the same.
