LOUISA TAYLOR CERAMICS
THE STORY OF TEA
Inspired by museum collections of historical dining vessels, Louisa Taylor's ceramics explore the rituals of dining as well as the role objects can play in encouraging stronger social relationships. Taylor’s hand-thrown porcelain work references particular yet subtle colour palettes common in the decoration of hand painted soup tureens throughout the ages.
Influenced by Louisa Taylor’s way of working we applied her deconstructed approach towards making objects to the way we photographed her work. For our photo series, we chose three subjects with a similar historical resonance; tea, mustard and marmalade. These have been part of Britain’s culinary culture for centuries, and the rituals developed around their consumption remain relevant today. For each series we looked at the history and the variations of each, and then deconstructed them to tell a story of the food or drink as we know it.
