Blood, Sweat and Fears

Melbourne-based artist Penny Byrne reworks vintage porcelain figurines, transforming them into humorous, politically charged works of art. Penny uses her accomplished skills as a ceramicist to manipulate and reconfigure decorative items that once adorned the shelves in grandma's cupboard. "I won't destroy important decorative art," she says. "I buy vintage figurines, which are poor copies of the original, I think they're just asking for trouble."
