0 out of 5 stars (69)

Announcement   Carrie Reichardt is a leading contemporary artist, who works from a mosaic-covered studio in London, The Treatment Rooms. A figurehead for the Craftivism movement, Carrie uses murals, ceramics, screen-printing and graphic design in her work and is called upon to speak on the use of craft and art as protest.

Her work has appeared in leading galleries around the world and she represented the UK as part of a group of international artists invited to mosaic the Argentinian Government building in Buenos Aires.

In 2013 she won the Winston Churchill Travelling fellowship and she is currently working on a major piece of public art for South Acton Estate.

Carrie is best known for her anarchic crockery, where vintage floral, kitsch, royal and religious crockery is given a new twist by re-firing with layers of new ceramic decals. They are modified in a "radical use of traditional things", along with skulls, cheeky slogans and political statements.

Unlike many of the artists who now imitate her work, Carrie is a trained ceramicist and all the work featured on this site use on-glaze transfers that have been fired in a kiln.

They are permanent, unscratchable and all products can be used and cleaned in a dishwasher.
