Tamsin van Essen
Ceramics designer Tamsin van Essen's 'Medical Heirloom' series consists of apothecary jars that, "appear to have been affected by various hereditary diseases – osteoporosis (top), psoriasis, acne (bottom), cancer, syphilis. As heirlooms, the jars can be passed down through the generations of a family in the same way as the medical conditions: a legacy of ill health". Nice way to start your Monday morning.
