Public Description: 

Working in both earthenware and porcelain, Ray explores the products of 18th-century ceramic manufactories including Wedgwood, Spode and Sèvres as representations of conspicuous consumption. Broken explores notions of display and privilege inherent in these objects as it questions the role of ceramics in society as both utilitarian objects and as symbols of wealth and status. Ray's work presents a unique opportunity to critique the role of ceramics in our domestic lives and thereby resonates with the thematics of ‘home’ surrounding Bundoora Homestead.
