Re-Made In China

The title, Re-Made in China, references the multiplicity of assorted assembly line, “Made in China,” commercial products. Post-consumer items Rosichelli sourced in thrift shops in his home town of Kansas City and carried through customs back to their country of origin. These objects were then recreated by ceramic artisans on site at The Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China during a month-long ceramic residency. Taking the form of both documentation and artwork, Rosichelli is depicted as a ceramic artist surrounded by his re-made creations. Re-Made in China questions the authenticity of objects, the handmade object, ownership and authorship. Rosichelli lets you in on the joke with a nod to the ubiquitous “Made in China" sticker.
