Stephanie Buttle’s work The Brew describes the deconstruction tea break: the very British tradition to pause to drink a hot wet beverage. In its diversity and ubiquitous tradition, the act of tea drinking is a national term marking the rhythm of the afternoon. In the ceramic studio for the maker, the tea break marks the pause between the physical act of making and the opportunity to muse and consider work and ideas.
The Brew is presented as a domestic scale work, a glimpse into the artist’s fascination for the act of manipulation and re-appropriation of the traditions of craft skill. These methods and processes inform and direct her more performative and artistic practice.
