The Syn-Tea-Sizer

A collaborative piece with Ingrid Murphy, this is a gold lustered tea set which upon touching emits the sounds of a chinking and rattling china tea service. The ceramic pieces are still and lifeless but the soundscape produced evokes busy, bustling tea making and stirring activity. The piece uses the conductive nature of the gold lustered surface to act as a sensor to trigger sound.

The Syn-Tea-Sizer was exhibited by Ceramics Ireland as part of the TOUCHSTONE 2017 exhibition at:

Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park, Dublin Saturday,
17th June – 20th September 2017
