Kellie Miller

Kellie Miller’s collection of 101 unique cups have been selected to be exhibited the 8th International Ceramic Festival in Mino, Japan in August and September 2008

Hove based Kellie, was also a finalist in the Taiwan International Ceramic Exhibition in 2004, and was artist in residence at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Shiga, Japan in 2003, has been given an honourable mention in one of the ceramic’s world’s most prestigious ceramics events, held every three years and visited by 150,000 over 2 months.

The work, 101 Couture Cups, is a handmade collection of individually unique cups. Kellie says
” this body of work needs to be seen and to be part of a museum collection. It takes a simple vessel and shows the diversity of how it can be made unique by the handle, surface design and shape. It also challenges how we use and hold a cup and highlights the accessibility of an everyday object”.

The installation and the design of these cups mark the beginning of Kellie Miller’s homeware range which is due to be launched in 2009
