Dear Sue Laws,
I have just come across some web information on your Deptford Creek project which amused me as I'm just off to HangZhou (tomorrow) with a trusty Blue Willow plate in my case for a few weeks of audio recording and photo sessions (in-situ as it were).
The project will manifest as a sound sculpture installation (slated for the ISEA festival in Istanbul 2011) in which a series of porcelain plates will be mounted on audio actuators in effect rendering them as a multiple channel sound work.
The other item that may be of some interest to you is a permanent installation in the new state library in Brisbane, Queensland entitled the "Great Wall of China" which is close to reality as the architectural space is literally filled with Willow Pattern ceramics (Brisbane is twinned with Shanghai).

You're right nothing on the web even at the State Library of Queensland site, anyhow here is just one small section of the 'great wall'. However this is not my project - I simply admired it whilst I was installing in the new state gallery of modern art next door.
Ps this is installed in a giant balcony type architectural space, open to the elements on one side.
