Thank you everyone that came to see me at the Live Electric Art Car Boot Fair! It was exciting to meet you in Real Life!
I'm not one of the ones who sells out at the fair, so I've got quite a few left. I've put a few up, but am exhausted with the digital world and giving up the will to live! So if you saw something you liked and can't see it here, please get in touch, you can find me on Instagram XXX
Here I'm mainly selling a selection of ceramic brooches, pendants and wall hangings I have made.
I break clay into shards and make brooches, pendants and wall hangings. I write words, that amuse or touch me, using scraffito and I sometimes use ceramic decals to create a further layer.

When I make pots I think about use, celebration, symbolic decoration and ritual acts. I make ceramics that subvert current narratives.
I am a founding member of the Neo Naturists performance art collective, along with Wilma Johnson and Jennifer Binnie. Formed in the early 80s we used our painted naked bodies, domestic items, found objects, and art works, to create colourful, meaningful performances which challenged narratives of the time.
Work from The Neo Naturist Archive is currently on show in Radical Landscapes at Tate Liverpool.
You can buy my pots and brooches at Tate Liverpool - House of Voltaire, London - The Shop, Hastings - The Tom Pain Press, Lewes and on Instagram @christine_binnie
