Lacrimae Rerum IV
David Holmes said his ‘personal favourites on show included the challenging work of Wendy Campbell-Briggs and Elena Cechinato, combining delicate porcelain pottery with dynamic sculpturalism.
The piece is called “Lachrimae Rerum” (the tears of things) and the individual pieces are just that, small porcelain tears hanging bunched by hemp string from a central hook. The imagery on the porcelain has delicate looking butterflies and roses but also has specific messages written on them, such as “nothing like a deadline” and “age honours keep no rules”. A fascinating and thought provoking piece which repays study and speculation.’
