Fleur Schell, renowned West Australian ceramic artist, has published this stunning book filled with her well known porcelain pieces and wonderful illustrations.
Our Strangely Normal Home is based on an artwork titled ‘Floorplan’. The inspiration behind ‘Floorplan’ was a collection of Fleur’s grandmothers old suitcases looking for a new home. Slowly over a year Fleur transformed twelve suitcases into a series of dioramas representing every room of her home. The result was a single wall mounted artwork. Each suitcase divulges the everyday, standard goings on in her families far from regular home. Translating ‘Floorplan' into an illustrative book has given Fleur wonderful freedom to embellish the myths that are now legend in their home. The book was designed by Lowana Bibby of Insomnia Design.
