Awrite Hen – 2018

Natalie and Maria are a couple of birds who make collaborative ceramics, and they’re hatching a new collection of work!

Awrite, Hen is a collection of collaborative works with ceramicist Natalie J Wood, featuring a combination of playful illustrated ceramics and prints, playing on the idea that women are ‘chicks.’ The work was exhibited at Flamingosaurus Rex in Edinburgh, featuring nudes, chickens, ceramic egg cups, ceramic chicken pins, tableware and decorative plates. The work aims make people laugh and maybe even make people think — what does it mean when we use the language we use to describe women?

A small selection of artist known as our 'Side Chicks' were also asked to take part decorating a small piece. Our side chicks included Emily Altman, Manda Comisari, Allolune, Natasha Russell and Emily Chow.

This exhibition took place in March 2018 at Flamingosaurus Rex, Edinburgh.

A donation was made to The British Hen Welfare Trust at the culmination of the exhibition.
