Rebecca Wilson

Holding an MA Ceramics from University of Wales Institute, Cardiff and a BDes (Hons) in Ceramics from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design,
Dundee, Rebecca is based at the Coburg House Studios, Edinburgh. Her exhibitions include: 'Collect 2009', The Saatchi Gallery, London; 'In The Window', Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool; 'Telling Tales', The Beetroot Tree, Derbyshire; RSA Annual Exhibition, Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.

The boundaries, if there really were any, between craft, design and fine art are disappearing in Rebecca's work. Choosing ceramic as both the material and subject, Rebecca aims to breathe new life into abandoned and forgotten everyday objects by making playful and ironic changes to the inherent properties of the objects, and combining precious porcelain with incidental materials such as jelly, chocolate and paper. Many of the re-born art objects explore our emotional cravings for food and how these interact with our other physical and emotional desires.
