Prickly Potty takes the everyday bathroom in a new direction by offering an array of reimagined bathroom essentials. Step into a potty where traditional bathroom forms are challenged, and immerse yourself in the Prickly Potty experience.

Julian Leigh May (they/them) is a Naarm/Melbourne-based experimental designer embracing a spectrum of disciplines and mediums. Their work transcends barriers between art and design, and spans furniture, lighting and object design. Central to their practice is an interest in redefining everyday objects through new narratives, material experimentations and forms. Julian holds an Associate Degree in Furniture Design from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Although early in their career, their work has been shown nationally and internationally, including National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Design Fair, Melbourne Design Week, Oigall Projects, Craft Contemporary, and the Taiwan Design Expo.

The installation is presented as part of Craft Contemporary 2023 – our annual festival celebrating craft practice today.
