We’re back with an update on Jessica Harrison’s Painted Lady series, a re-imagination of the classical porcelain figurines in a nonconformist way: covered with awesome sailor style tattoos.
The Scottish artist who has taken tattoo-inspired art to a whole new level has even more full skirts and full sleeves to share! She finds ceramic sculptures and then uses enamel paint to adorn the figurines’ glossy skin with colorful, tiny designs. Jessica’s tattooed porcelain figurines are covered with anchors, provocative mermaids, majestic birds and sailing ships in a surprising, eye-catching combination.

The tattooed porcelain ladies painted by Jessica Harrison put in contrast the innocent sweetness of the classical porcelain figurines with the rough and tough aspect of tattoos. From our point of view, the juxtaposition of the two worlds is a successful one, the tattoos accentuating even more the beauty and delicacy of the figurines. An unexpected twist to these Victorian-style ceramics  that breathes new life into them.
