1.2a Soda Wood fired St Davids Collection
My practice negotiates the boundaries between the handmade and mass produced, combining modern technologies with the more traditional ceramic techniques of slip casting. Using CAD I have devised a bespoke modular method of constructing segmental moulds for slip cast - an approach which enables me to design parts of great complexity and detail. The innovative method of mould assembly ensures that each piece can be a one-off. I hope the finished form of my objects will prove visually appealing and make the viewer curious about materiality and the processes involved in their creation.
This 1.2a piece was wood fired in a soda kiln at Guldagergaard Ceramics Research centre. You can see on the surface of this porcelain form where the wood smoke and ash have created colour and patina.
