Molly Hatch’s Worcester Imari is composed of 99 hand-painted Italian Earthenware plates with underglaze, glaze, and 11-karat gold details. The intricate patterns and colors that have been hand-painted on the plates form Hatch’s contemporary interpretation of a pair of eighteenth-century painted vases with lids, currently on display at the Frances and Emory Cocke Collection in Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. This is the first work in a series of four.
Hatch’s work has been widely collected, commissioned, and exhibited at art fairs nationally and internationally. 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 the spring of 2014, Physic Garden, a monumental 456-plate work, was installed at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. In 2015, Chronicle Books of San Francisco published a book of her work. In 2016, the Clayarch Gimhae Museum in Korea exhibited a selection of wall installations by the artist.
As Hatch works on a commission basis, custom works may be created through Todd Merrill Studio.
