A Mosaic of handmade Ceramic parts on a church wall in St. Pauli, Hamburg. This street art style mosaic celebrates “Park Fiction” which was fought for by the St.Pauli neighbourhood. The initial plan by the Senat to build concrete “blocks” of buildings on this site and in doing so completely close off the fantastic views of the Elbe river below was chucked and instead the open space was redeveloped into a park where a lot of dogs, local residents and tourists hang out.

This was the first test i did of printing a laser decal onto a second hand ceramic plate whilst i was at the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemét Hungary. Even though the sepia colour of the birds fired a bit pale I was happy with the result for a first attempt.

This is part of a sculptural arch built of broken porcelain and ceramics in the garden of the International Ceramic Studio, a ceramic art centre in Kecskemét in Hungary where i did a transfer printing on ceramics master course a few years ago. I was lucky in as much as we were a very small group –  there were only three of us taking part in the course. We learnt how to make and fire ceramic laser decals and experimented with painting on porcelain. I had a great time and met some lovely ceramic artists.

This bench is on the corner of Marktstrasse in Carolinenvertiel in Hamburg. I couldn´t see anywhere who made it, the handmade tiles are so nice and cheerful. While I was taking photos of it this man suddenly appeared, he told me he sleeps on it some nights in the summer. We had a nice little chat and then he pulled out his harmonica and gave me a little tune.
