GULDAGERGAARD CERAMICS RESEARCH CENTRE

2021

I have recently spent six weeks in the Danish seaside town of Skelskor, joining the Project Network Program at Guldageraard Ceramics research centre. I spent this time working along side seven other lovely recent graduates from around Europe. The image above is a piece from the St Davids collection fired in a wood fired soda kiln. (Image by Ole akhøj)

THE ST DAVIDS COLLECTION

2021

My practice negotiates the boundaries between the handmade and mass-produced, combining modern technologies with more traditional ceramic techniques. Using CAD I have devised a bespoke modular method of constructing segmental moulds for slipcast. The innovative method of mould assembly ensures that each piece can be 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.

LEARNING TO THROW

2020

Wanting to understand more about clay as a material and having the access to a wheel during my Covid 19 lockdown, I set about learning to throw. Using home dug clay, sieving, wedging, throwing and firing in a wood fired kiln. Allowing me to see the ceramic process from beginning to end.

WOOD FIRED DRAGON VASE

2020

This terracotta vase, with an Almington slip was fired in my newly built wood fired kiln. Using reclaimed bricks and home dug clay I created an environment where I was able to bend a cone 06 (around 1000 c).

DESIGNING A WOOD FIRED KILN

2020

Following the announcement of the first Covid 19 lockdown I moved to North Shropshire where I was rendered kiln-less. What better than to explore building my own!

PUZZLE TWO

2020

Continuing to develop my new found process. Pushing the clay to its limits, creating structural forms playing around with composition.

PUZZLE ONE

2020

Through playing around with my childhood building blocks, I constructed complex negative spaces. Leading to the birth of an exciting concept, creating my own building blocks through 3D print and combining with the traditional technique of slip cast.

EAT.

Bowls designed to help with portion sizing. Designed in my first year in response to seeing food waste produced by in-correct portioning.

WHITWORTH THREADS

2019

Salt and Pepper shakers designed as part of a university collaboration for the Whitworth Art Gallery. Inspired by the recently built extension to the gallery - featuring an interestingly constructed red brick wall.
