I love bad things: the dark side of creativity

Stumbled upon this site while researching the work of Michael Doolan. Worth a look if you are attracted to the darker side of life.

Unbearable Sydney Design 09

I managed to piece together the fragments that survived the long trip from Norway for a display in this years Sydney Design Utility Exhibition titled 'Unbearable'. I also began work on a new display shelf made out of acrylic to hold liquids. I wanted to experiment with the porosity of the ceramic pieces and the contrast in textures. The piece is titled 'The Lust of the Huldra: a norwegian nightmare' and is based on the Norwegian myth of the woodland temptress, the Huldra, who lures men out of their homesteads with her beauty to steal their sheep and milk.

Thank you Mark for taking all the lovely photos.
