Limited edition tea towel by artist Melanie Jackson.

Very few 15th-century ceramic moulds made for baking have been preserved, though many were in use. This would have made unapologetic and inexpensive spiced bread sculptures, to be sold or given out at revelries and fairs.

About the Artist:

'Melanie Jackson has been developing an aesthetic that allows her to reflect on the manner in which she is implicated in the condition of her subjects…She tries out tactics of representation which remain provisional rather than definitive, treating the gallery as a stage for experimentation with art roles. Here is mimicry, documentation, myth fabrication, cultural voyeurism, performance, animation, political commentary, music, installation, craft and the cultivation of aesthetic delight. The irresolvable contradictions in this set of maneouvres keeps her own complicity visible as part of the circulation of meanings around her art.' - Mark Harris
