While keeping himself busy with postmodern Howard Hodgkin-esque painting and collage work, Ben Sanders is somehow finding the time to paint funny faces on ceramics. Cutting through the “worthy lifestyle” pottery trend with googly eyes, zigzag nostrils and creepy grins, Ben has stamped his sense of humour and aesthetic all over these thriving succulents’ homes.

The series, titled Pot Dealer has also been art directed and photographed very well amongst colour-coded tape and condiment dispensers, Post-it smilies and lots of rubber gloves.
