Perseus & Andromeda Vessel
Perseus & Andromeda Vessel by Laura Carlin was inspired by Laura’s residency at Holkham Hall, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. In response to the nature in which Sir Thomas Coke - First Earl of Leicester who commissioned the design and build of Holkham Hall - curated his art collection, Laura has created a series of ceramic vessels. Her vases and bowls draw on the themes found in the paintings and statues collected by Coke and positioned in conversation with another. The Perseus & Andromeda Vessel draws direct inspiration from the Grade II listed fountain to the south of Holkham Hall which depicts the legend of the Greek mythological lovers Perseus & Andromeda, and how Perseus rescued Andromeda from being sacrificed to a monster to appease Poseidon, the Sea God. Through her intricate illustrations Laura brings the events and legend to life, once more in the present day.
