Jessica Wheeler I




Jessica Wheeler had a wonderful bathroom as her degree show presentation with little ceramic figures dipping their toes in the glazed water. 
"I have focused on the theme of body image; through this I have celebrated people of all shapes in the shower curtain Naked Parade. I have also been developing a swimwear range  . . . the aim of all my work is to be aesthetically satisfying from a distance, and to niggle a giggle under closer inspection." Jessica Wheeler

The frequent ceramic renderings by illustrators seems to me to be the manifestation of a strong desire to see their creations leap off the page from the two dimensional world of dreams into three dimensional reality.
