The Rum Shack's window displays a collection of ceramic vases, each inspired by a romantic-ish song Ivy has listened to on repeat. The vases choreograph the flowers, like a chaotic dance they move to the songs. There is a playlist to go alongside the vases, with selected lyrics appearing on some. The first vase, which inspired the collection, the largest, I'll Bring You Flowers, is an ode to Ivy's friend Issy, the song by Female Attitude will forever remind them of her.
A radio show accompanying Ivy's window display will also take place on Sunday the 26th on Clyde Built Radio.
Ivy is an artist, making collections, assortments and playlists, mostly using clay to bring these obsessions to life. Ivy currently works on their relationship between digital music and ceramics. Whether this be an image of a swimming pool or the latest pop banger, there is a fascination with giving these obsessions a place in the physical world. A want for touch. A want for joy. Ivy's work is playful and often involves bringing people together. They are currently working on a project transforming their song obsessions into vases, vessels and speaker ceramics, like a form of trophy, declaration or romance. A want for the songs to exist as objects and belong to a gang.
