Framed original, liquid emulsion print on porcelain.
Photographic silver gelatin print.
Hand-shaped, high fired paper porcelain disk. 

This artwork was inspired by respected academic and tragic heroine Hypatia. One of the last great thinkers of ancient Alexandria, she was one of the first women to study and teach mathematics, philosophy and astronomy.

Widely known for her love of learning and public speaking, her reputation as a great female scholar, honoured astronomer and prominent thinker, transformed Hypatia into a feminist icon and empowering role model for female intellectuals in modern times.

 

Hypatia's Celestial Studies (On Porcelain) was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture, a photogram of a wasp nest combined with hand-painted chemigrams creating planetary structures.

After shaping, pressing and firing the porcelain disks, they are brush coated with the melted, sensitised silver gelatin emulsion under the red safelight light and then left to dry in a completely dark room. The large scale negative is contact printed onto the porcelain by exposing using a large format photographic enlarger. The disk is then processed in conventional black & white chemistry. The porcelain must then be thoroughly soaked in water to remove any silver residue. It can then be left to dry ready for mounting and framing.


 

Dimensions - 150mm diameter (unframed) 210mm diameter (framed) x 30mm frame depth x 13mm frame face

Materials - Printed on onto 3mm thick high fired, hand-shaped paper porcelain disk, linen pressed texture.

Mount - We use float mounting for all of our framed silver gelatin porcelain pieces. The artwork floats above a snow-white mount board, showcasing the ceramic form, texture and edging.

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. They prime and sand the wooden frame before spraying black or white soft-sheen paint to achieve the highest quality finish. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard. 

If you would like a bespoke frame, please get in touch to discuss alternative colours, gilding and glazing options.
