Molly Hatch, Worcester Imari, USA, 2014
Molly Hatch’s Worcester Imari is composed of 99 hand-painted Italian earthenware plates. The intricate patterns and colors painted on the plates comprise Hatch’s contemporary interpretation of a pair of eighteenth-century painted vases with lids belonging to the Frances and Emory Cocke Collection at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. The work reawakens interest in the historic through 21st-century aesthetic choices.
In the past decade, the name Molly Hatch has become synonymous with contemporary ceramics. Hatch’s ceramic installations, inspired by historical decoration, have been exhibited and collected all over the world and garnered her a loyal and fervent following. Todd Merrill Studio has represented Hatch since 2013.
As Hatch works on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
