Sweetened Condensed

Sweetened Condensed is a series of illustrations and illustrated ceramics by Elizabeth Burritt based on a selection of one-line stories, each by a different writer. The project explores narratives that are restricted in length and convey only the most basic information, thereby leaving space for interpretation and exploration. The stories were solicited from friends and strangers with the promise that those who penned the selections for the final project would receive prints of the illustrations in return for their efforts.
