Molly Hatch, Aspire: After Meissen, USA, 2015

Aspire uses motifs from the iconic Meissen Porcelain Manufacturer’s Purple Indian tableware pattern. Aspire is the second in an ongoing series of works that explores the relationship between the historic and the contemporary through the deconstruction of traditional tableware patterns. Hatch modernizes the historic surface pattern with her painterly brush strokes on 60 ceramic plates. The work  reawakens interest in the historic through 21st-century aesthetic choices.

In 2009, Hatch’s career took off after she was awarded the prestigious Arts/Industry Residency in Pottery at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin. Since then, Hatch’s work has been in high demand. In 2013, Hatch had a solo museum exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Alliance and was included in “New Blue and White,” a contemporary decorative arts exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In 2014, Physic Garden, a monumental 456-plate work, was installed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta as well as Caughly Landscape, another installation commissioned by the museum and the Woodruff Arts Center. Chronicle Books published Hatch’s first illustrated book of paintings in March of 2015. In 2016, the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in Korea exhibited a selection of wall installations by the artist.

As Hatch works on a commission basis, a bespoke installation may be requested.
