Having acquired herself a ticket to the Olympics synchronized swimming event, an idea was sparked in the creative mind of ceramicist Alice Mara. Inspired by the way synchronized swimmers create patterns and regimentation with their bodies, she set about working up these designs. She wanted the viewer to see at first glance an ornate pattern, then on closer inspection see the group of elegant synchronized swimmers.
As with all of her work, Alice asked a friend to pose for a 50’s inspired swimming photoshoot, having ordered a vintage swimming cap from ebay. She was pleased with the outcome because the imagery immediately took on the feel of swimmers from a bygone era, but with a contemporary twist.
