A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

What a Crock!

Esther Derkx
has a little problem with silkscreening. Give the lady a squeegee and screen, and she'll cover the world in her particular brand of mayhem. Derkx travels a reckless path along the ridgeline dividing art, craft, and design, covering her work in humor and visual puns. In particular, I love her rehabilitated dishes, which seem to come from a daintier place than Sarah Cihat's 50Cents work. The crockery in her collection combines cheesecake male and female forms with ever-so-familiar floral decals. Cheeky. Eat your cheesecake off of some cheesecake.....or beefcake, whichever the case may be.
