Overview

A tragic story is played out by porcelain figurines residing in a bric-a-brac shop. Barnaby Barford's animation explores notions of forbidden love, material wealth and class divisions using traditions of value within ceramics, while also turning the classic ‘rags to riches’ plot on its head with an unexpected twist.
