"Horse of a Different Colour" is a series of bowls made from horse bone.
Bone China is a delicate porcelain based on the slaughter of animals as their bones were necessary for production. Interested in revealing the presence of animal by-products in our daily lives and inspired by this method of ceramic making, 23 horse femurs were bought at a slaughter house to produce 36 bowls. The femurs were cleaned, cut, put in a kiln (twice), crushed in a mortar and pestle and finally placed in ball mill for 8 hours to make the ash necessary for the creation of the bowls.
The non-industrial nature of the process mean the bowls' have a unique texture and reveal the organic matter that make up their composition.
