These espressos are designed to float. They embody in their vitrification the essence of a fragility – endemic in both their process and as unfired objects. Their making is a test to both the porcelain and the maker – and going to these unusual lengths is why they appear as they do. Each piece demands…

My work explores the creation of Chinese ceramics and the appropriation of traditional skills into Western contemporary aesthetics. Searching for resources from traditional culture and using them as a mirror to advance and to continue the current culture is an important element of contemporary Chinese ceramics. I am passionate about traditional skills and interested in…

The aim of my work is to strike an emotive response in a viewer, to evoke empathy and embroil them within an unravelling tale. This approach has roots in participatory practice and seeks to draw an onlooker in, encouraging them to complete the story for themselves. The objects represent the cast of a potential narrative, some…

The aim behind my practice is to affect mood and temperament through use of lighting specifically, bringing the organic and fluid into architectural spaces to create contemplative and calming settings. I aim to challenge perception of lighting design and consider it possibly the most important element in interior design. I engage with redefining purpose, from…

There is ‘invisible disability’, impairment not immediately apparent but impactful nevertheless. Rachel’s practice is semi-autobiographical exploring her experience of being a former circus performer and climbing teacher and now with ‘invisible disability’. Her use of materials reflects how even the most invisible disability or perfect specimen when under scrutiny, can expose the fragility, flaws and…

Storytelling is a timeless method of learning, once relied upon in a world before we became so controlled and overseen. My work interprets primitive narratives taken from these cultural mythologies. But rather than read or listen to the evolution of a tale, a viewer is invited to enter into the narrative and become a part…

The process of making the work in this exhibition mimics the activity of experiencing its properties.  Each stage of development takes manipulation and exploration of materials. From this exploration the pieces change and develop into interesting shapes and forms, increasing in complexity and in their organic nature. This manipulation involves pouring, casting, carving, dropping and…

I start my creative journey by identifying outlines of shapes and forms within my surroundings. I have a growing interest in the impact an object can have in a particular space in relation to our mind and body. This has inevitably led to questioning definition of an object once the scale has been increased. This…

Drawing inspiration from graph readings of seismic events, I utilise the physicality and structure of the thrown vessel and construct forms with composite juxtapositional surface qualities to present the notion of ecological fragility. My work portrays the notion of the ‘catalyst’ – to depict a moment of sudden, destructive change in a seemingly congruous sequence…

Painting has always represented things but when have things ever represented painting?’ Germane Oregano on Betty Woodman For me the surface of an object is as important as its physicality. The surface and form function together in one object, where drawing and painting are of equal relevance to the outcome of my ceramic work, as the…

During my exploration into perception of space, I have examined certain psychoanalytical theories that attempt to account for the effect of art on our unconscious.     The main focus of my work is the psychological reaction when confronted with familiar aspects of the human body, if presented out of context. This exhibition uses skin as…

In the natural world we are surrounded by repetition of pattern and form.  From the tiny spiral on a snail shell to the vast galaxy nebulas, these patterns self-reference and echo.  Although nature contains certain chaos and changeability, these forms create order and a connection that can help us to make sense of life. My…
