Crustacean-Inspired Tea Sets
Feel Closer to the Sea with the Mary O'malley Ceramics Collection

By: Ariel Weber (Star) Dec 23, 12

The Mary O’malley ceramics collection of porcelain tea pieces takes inspiration from the bottom of the ocean.

Each of the porcelain formal wear has a very elegant and ephemeral quality, which is blended with sea creatures found underwater. The motivation behind her collection is due to her childhood memories as well as her surroundings as she currently resides seaside. Each of the pieces are partially covered in brown colored crustaceans, which provides an interesting contrast between delicate and harsh. As the artist so eloquently puts it “it is a reminder that no matter how much we try to control the creation of what we think is beautiful, nature can and will usually end up taking over.”

Mary O’malley ceramics evokes an intriguing collection that harmoniously blends two different aesthetics existing in one piece.
