blue lovers is a public ceramic site-specific work which explores vantage point and composition through elements of the Blue Willow pattern.
Ceramicist Rory MacDonald is currently Assistant Professor of Ceramics at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and the 2007 winner of the Winifred Shantz Award for emerging ceramics in Canada. Central to his current research is the exploration of the concept of public craft. His public interventions include street tags of traditional blue and white Willow pattern made during his residency at Medalta in Medicine Hat, Alta. In another project called Curb Work, he drew attention to the deterioration of curbsides and sidewalks in downtown Regina. Repairing the fissures with exquisitely decorated ceramic patches, his strategic activism highlighted the deterioration but improved the urban streetscape.
