Jane Lee McCracken

Limited Edition Fine Bone China Art Plate Series: In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia, designed by British artist Jane Lee McCracken.

Inspired by her passion for childhood memoirs, fairy tales, travel, forests and animals and her continuing interest in war and loss, Jane makes intricate, multi-layered drawings with colour or black Biros, utilising her drawings to create multimedia objects and installations. Using photographs she has taken of films and documentaries, her dog, people and found objects surrounding her as inspiration, she builds complex layers of drawn images in Biro as if film stills projected over one another, resulting in monotone or colour abstract pieces with an ethereal, cinematic quality.

Taking weeks and months to create each drawing, her aim is to make pieces that juxtapose the beauty and brutal reality of life thus creating memorials to lives lived, both human and animal and ways of life lost. Her work provokes consideration of loss whether through war or disaster, coaxing empathy for the emotional or physical scars experienced by humans, animals or the environment. Her ‘fairytale-esque’ drawings transport the viewer to far-away places and exigent times just as tales of old have transported innumerable generations.

All plates are made of Fine Bone China in Stoke-on-Trent, England.

Limited edition of 200 each.

These pieces are made to order. The lead time for these items may be up to 2 weeks.
