'Hostile cups: Obstruct'

'Obstruct': 1 of a set of 5 ceramic pots, wheel thrown with hand-built adjustments.

Artist statement: "Hostile architecture is a phenomenon with rase rise significantly throughout urban design this century. A widely recognised example of this type of design is the 'uncomfortable bench'. Interventions of this kind are now familiar, and can even be a cause of comfort to privileged audiences, but it is important to consider their sociological effects. We have replaced human interaction, nuance and empathy with hard, physical and non-negotiable solutions. Identifying five core aspects of hostile urban design - limit, control, obstruct, impede and deter - I have developed a series of ceramic cups which each embody one of these qualities."

Embroidered panel

Similar panels appear in Mackintosh's drawings of the east wall of the principal bedroom at The Hill House although it is not certain when they were installed there as early photographs taken in 1904 do not show them. The panels appear to be duplicates of those shown at the Vienna Secession exhibition in 1900 and bought by Emil Blumenfelt; at least one of these (listed as a 'bed curtain') was lent by Blumenfelt to the Turin exhibition in 1902 - although it lacks the lower section of black silk seen on The Hill House panels.
