Katie Jacobs x Melbourne Museum

Born in Melbourne and based in Castlemaine, artist and ceramicist Katie Jacobs has delved into the Paleontology collections at Melbourne Museum and created this range of fun and curious plates and figurines, available exclusively through Museums Victoria Store.

In these objects Katie Jacobs examines how some species of dinosaur have transcended time to capture the scientific and aesthetic imaginations of contemporary Australians, young and old. The pop colours and patterns transform these prehistoric reptiles into charming household items, both provocative and entertaining.  

Each piece is individually hand crafted and retains the marks of the maker, sculpting and sintering a connection between us and these ancient animals.
