DC Graffiti mug

Approximately 3.5" x 3.5"

This work is really conceptual for me. I’m not just taking art I like and slapping on my pot and selling it. I’m capturing something fleeting and preserving it on a material that is permanent. Could graffiti and ceramics be more different? Not really, and how interesting is that?! Could I do this in collaboration with writers and legal walls? I guess, but I don’t really want to - not for these at least. I’m attracted to the layers and the decay and the story this tells, the unique curation that occurs with graffiti. Can I ask permission from the artists I’m putting on my pots? No - there’s a lot on each piece, they’re anonymous by choice, and writing on property that isn’t theirs. It’s anarchy! And it’s a mug. There’s definitely a little humor here, but there’s also content about gentrification - with full acknowledgement of my part in this - see title below. I took these pictures in the alley over by Union Market Washington DC. If you’re local you know the one.

    Hand washing is best. 

    Microwaving is fine unless there are gold decals present, then it might spark a little.
