Hand made delicate bone china cup.

This body of work by Becky Mackenzie was created specifically for Bloom! York 2018, celebrating York's Horticultural history.
The illustrations feature plants that thrive in post-industrial landscapes. These habitats exist in the North of England as a result of the rise and fall of heavy industry and mining, but are now themselves under threat. The work references environmental fragility, resilience and transcience; the qualities inherent in the very fine clay body of the work itself.
