These little ladies are from the Peachy Keen range, part of the Eat Me; Keep Me series. The Eat Me; Keep Me series focuses on the notion of self indulgence. In exploring the parallels between ‘valuable’ and ‘everyday’ I have drawn a symmetry of opposites between porcelain and confectionary items; both are similarly self indulgent, inspire desire and are coveted, but both are fundamentally frivolous. Advertising campaigns play to our vanity and suggestibility, and in the competition to see which brand can be the sexiest we don’t know any more whether we should be eating the chocolate pudding or pouring it all over ourselves! We are clearly enticed by the notion of food as a luxury, an indulgence, something a little bit naughty. And why not?
