Ceramicist Rebecca Wilson turns fruit into enticing mini-sculptures of the female form in a body of work titled “Eat Me; Keep Me.” On her work:
“In exploring the parallels between ‘valuable’ and ‘everyday’ I have drawn a symmetry of opposites between porcelain and confectionary items; both are similarly self indulgent, inspire desire and are coveted, but both are fundamentally frivolous. I aim to remove the formality of the materials so they simply drip with the desire of momentary self-indulgence.”
Wilson’s Dirty Rotten Peaches are cast in stained porcelain, and details are delicately piped using an icing bag. The fruits transform into voluptuous ladies bottoms sprouting delicate gold leaves and other unmentionable creamy things.
