Mick Jagger (Set of 10) by Andy Warhol, 1975By the 1970s Warhol no longer relied on found imagery and had considerably expanded his range of subjects.

The series of ten screenprints of Mick Jagger were characteristic of this change in style and the artist used a selection of ten of his own photographs that he had taken of Jagger.
Caroline Cheng's 'Prosperity' series: Robes made of thousands of hand-made ceramic butterflies
In her latest work, renowned Jingdezhen and Shanghai based artist Caroline Cheng, builds on the porcelain traditions of the past.

Cheng’s reinvention of the tradition of tea drinking features in her wood-fired stoneware pieces, each with a porcelain slip to capture more of the tea flavour.
