Meredith Host's surface decoration is based on her collection of overlooked domestic patterns like toilet paper & paper towel patterns. The prevalence of these dimpled decorations in our daily life renders them invisible, their utility questionable -- barely noticing them and take them for granted. In Host's line of wares, she is taking these motifs and reintroducing them by transferring them from one material to another. Ultimately, Meredith is giving these patterns visibility and celebrating their presence in the context of other domestic objects meant for daily use.
Ms. Host has been collecting these swatches for around 15 years and uses the subtle patterns from her collection to create decals. Host builds up the surface with layers of screen-printed china paint decals in which she layers, layers, and layers some more! Each piece is fired at least 3 times – sometimes more!
