Barnaby Barford’s aesthetics could look traditional but will change the way you think about ceramic figurines forever. I always had the feeling that ceramic figurines had something innocent and pure in their static form. Always perfectly shaped, irreproachably curved, the china display is so démodé but so untouchable.
British artist Barnaby Barford added a modern twist to those classic ceramic pieces, some became the Good, some the Bad, some stayed the Belle.(the story continues right after the jump with more pictures)
The same way Chucky (Child’s Play) somewhat changed the way I looked at (certain) dolls, that’s how Barnaby Barford changed my china perspective. Is a somewhat natural transition towards the present realities, but is it really a good thing to torn the naïve ceramic figurines into bullies portraits and junk meal delights? (via)
