Tailored Ceramics

What happens when two crafts meet?
By exchanging the material-specific techniques of clay slab building and pattern-making in textiles, a new form language is explored and embodied in a series of ceramic objects. In the realm of fabric, it is the seams that hold the pieces together and create shape and volume. The malleability of clay, however, allows for ‘seamless’ connections, with the material being smoothed out. ‘Tailored Ceramics’ shows how obvious seams can create a new form language in pottery. A series of re-invented iconic vases, such as an amphora, an alabaster or a French ‘bugadier’, celebrate the outcome of this crafty encounter.

This first series was re-edited with a glazed interior finish.

The glazed pieces Bugadier, Oenochoe and Alabaster are currently on show and available at the -> Mint Gallery, London, on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Alchemy of Form’.

The ‘Tailored Ceramics, glazed’ series was featured at  the ->Tools Galerie, Paris, during the ‘Objets d’Explorations’ exhibition (12.05.-30.06.2023).
