Collective Memories of the London, 2012
Ceramic and ink
Lift lobbies of The Royal London Children’s Hospital
Ceramicist Katharine Morling spent six-weeks on children’s wards working with patients to create sketchbooks recalling favourite memories and treasured toys. Morling then used these sketchbooks to develop porcelain sculptures for her commission for the new children’s hospital. Featuring performing rhinos, butterflies and train tracks made from rulers, Collective Memories of the London presents a dream-like version of the everyday world.
Katharine Morling lives and works in east London. Morling studied at Falmouth University and at the Royal College of Art. Her award-winning ceramics are collected and exhibited nationally and internationally.
