Museum mugs

During January 2013 I undertook a month long residency in the Ulster Museum, Belfast.
I was very interested at meeting all of the people who worked in the museum and I spent a lot of time in the staff room. The resulting work looked at the politics of ‘the mug list’ in the staff-room.
The members staff that used the staff room were offered the opportunity to design there own mug and have it made for them. To make each of the staff a mug that would be part of each person interest and have a conversation with each of the other mugs.

‘The mug list’ was printed on two mugs and is to be displayed as a relic, shown in the Museum of Ulster at a later date.
