Mel Robson is a ceramic artist based in Brisbane, Australia. She makes functional and non-functional objects out of porcelain. She is obsessed by road maps, recipes, sewing patterns and handwriting. Really obsessed.

Here’s a (teeny tiny barely visible) little sneak peak of the work (above), which is being permanently installed at the new Southbank Institute of TAFE Library. It’s made up of 15 very fine black and white porcelain vessels. The imagery on them is drawn from/inspired by the history of the site and the surrounding environment. …
