'THE FALCON CANNOT HEAR THE FALCONER'Magdalene OdundoArtist in Residence, WedgwoodJasperware 150 x 48 cmExhibited at Houghton Hall, Sponsored by Loewe FOUNDATIONMay - September 2024An incredible honour for Magdalene Odundo to accept the invitation as Artist in Residence for Wedgwood, reigniting the spirit of Josiah by creating this important piece in collaboration with Wedgwood's skilled craftspeople and factory. With the greatest of thanks to Magdalene, Andrew Bonacina, Wedgwood's craftspeople, factory and design team for bringing this ambitious project to life.Odundo explored Wedgwood’s archives and looked deeply at Josiah Wedgwood's correspondence with Olaudah Equiano - a formerly enslaved man who became one of the most influential voices in the abolitionist movement.Magdalene Odundo: "I wanted to deconstruct and reconstruct something that would be spectacular and totally contrasting to my own work. Because this was a residency, I was mindful that I would never get another chance to make work that was different from my personal ceramics, work that challenged me and that might challenge my co-collaborators at the Wedgwood Factory"."We live within this contrast of beauty but brutality as well. Today in 2024, we are surrounded by the real brutalities of what we can do to each other: through the wars going on and, through poverty. At the same time, we do have this beautiful world to live in. The fact that we still see beautiful things happening is a contradiction at the same time, a reality. I want the piece not to necessarily just be negative; I want the piece to contain both."#magdaleneodundo #wedgwood #craft #josiahwedgwood

    Vogue Business 2024 Menswear predictions: Lucy Maguire "Grandparent-inspired homeware will also have a moment in 2024. The Future Laboratory predicts consumers will lean into luxury heirlooms, like branded crockery or ceramics. An early signal came from skate brand Palace’s tie-in with traditional ceramics brand Wedgwood, released in October, featuring a printed tea set with the palace logo and a Wedgwood-blue skateboard. On Palace’s site, the collab is accompanied by slogans like “spending all your wedge on a teacup”."This is a generation of men who have become used to drop culture and collecting, says The Future Laboratory director of foresight, Fiona Harkin. “Previously it might have been sneakers, then watches, now we’re seeing it come through in luxury tableware, too. There’s that real celebration of ritual. And those tangible products that in a world of disposability seem to have a new attraction.”

    Throughout its illustrious history, Wedgwood has opened its doors to many revered artists. Our new vision is to reinstate Wedgwood as a creative hub for artists, welcoming in mavericks and thought leaders to express themselves freely through Wedgwood. It simply had to be Charles to start this new moment. Charles Jeffrey Loverboy reflects a freedom of expression, optimism and authenticity in his multidisciplinary approach which juxtaposes perfectly with Wedgwood's iconic jasperware.#CharlesjeffreyLOVERBOY #Wedgood #innovation #craft #collaboration
