Katie Lee’s sculptural installation is based on her investigation into utilitarian ware in the collection. It includes historic water filters, bed warmers and urns that combine ceramic with other materials such as wood, rubber and brass to fulfil functional purposes.
Her installation includes Kirsten Coelho's 2007 piece Iron and the Air, which uses glazing techniques to mimic metal and rust.
