Playing cards thrown on the ground, found in Jingdezhen (China)
Made in Jingdezhen
, 2016, 54 playing cards deck
Jingdezhen is a city in China known for its ancient ceramic manufacturing. Local artisans use playing cards as a working tool to mix glazes and smooth the clay. During a stay in this city, I collected a complete set by picking up cards I found on the ground. This set of cards is then reproduced in 50 copies.
