Artist Statement

Nikki Sims

I spent time drawing and researching the modernist ceramics collection at the V&A and was drawn to the simple shape and surface texture of this particular vase. I designed three fabric collections as a result of my research, but this collection of screen-printed fabric (I've submitted the first one printed on white linen) referenced this pot the most. Its shape was a delight to draw and I think that the pencil lines of the design (some broken, some solid) transferred well to the fabric and the overall feel of the piece.
