Porcelain and Glass RCA 2005-2007
This collection of porcelain and glass tableware represents an exploration of the relationships that develop between objects as they are arranged and utilised. Contrasts in texture and density of materials create opportunities for unexpected harmonies or delightful incongruities. Forms are inspired by the qualities of the materials. Porcelain has strikingly different properties when using different techniques. Finely thrown and drizzled slip conveys translucent elegance, but when thickly sculpted in its raw state the density and opacity captures a spontaneous gesture.
