Paul Hartigan for gallery

Post  Maryr on Mon 16 Nov - 10:11

On Saturday I had the good fortune to see Paul Hartigan talking about his work. He is an odd man out as he uses commercial dinnerware and adds his own decals.  He is primarily an artist, not a potter.  But the effect is interesting and collectable.  He designed the decals and got someone else to create transfers which would work with ceramics. Paul then applied the decals and fired them.  Some of the examples below were never sold on the open market; they show the range of tattoo decals he designed. All slightly nutty but interesting!
He did a 'tattoo' series and an 'erotica' series, all on commercial dinnerware purchased in bulk. Consequently his work often includes a commercial backstamp as well as his mark.  The erotica series is quite racy - Ev if you feel the need to delete the pic then go for it.

He used quite a few different marks. Often his name is next to one of the decorative decals rather than on the base. The gold ware is called "borneo" - photo was taken in low light.
