Liverpool-based artist Pauline Hughes takes a fluid approach to her ceramic practice, integrating techniques of painting, collage, and printmaking into her works. Combining the mystery of a Surrealist work with the romance of a Watteau painting, this mixed-media tile dresses the stoic portrait of a painted lady in fragments of printed fabrics and accessories. The view just over her shoulder gives a glimpse at a grand English estate, creating an ambiguous setting that lends the tile an uncanny sense of depth. Hughes holds a degree in ceramic arts from Brighton Polytechnic and exhibits widely in the United Kingdom and United States.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
