Here we have gathered all our print catalogues from Project Network throughout the years. Please take the time to look through some of our artists’ inspiring and beautiful ceramic art works.
The beauty of process.
Simplicity, minimalism and functionality are key to Scandinavian design; this collection of work explores that aesthetic and purpose. Slip casting is an industrial technique and this work showcases the process. By layering coloured slip within the tableware, I am emphasizing the casting method. Altering the way in which the pieces are stacked and displayed creates variation to the aesthetic of the work.
Material, machine, human – these elements come together to make objects that couldn’t be made solely by a human or a machine.
The result is a translation from a 2-dimensional drawing into a 3-dimensional object, built up in one single line of porcelain. It’s an investigation of the line as a physical means to make a drawing and how far you can push the process and material. Walking a fine line between control and lack thereof.
In my practice I want to make people laugh and think. To do this, I am exploring our experience of the ‘grotesque’ and the ‘uncanny’. The use of the ‘grotesque’ produces a kind of ‘soul dizziness’ as you do not know whether to laugh or cry.
I am currently interested in codes, in particular those used in commercial outlets, but also those used to carry personal information. There is a loss of humanity and a commodification of self in the digital, codified age.
In 1936 Walter Benjamin wrote in his seminal essay, “The work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction”
“The adjustment of reality to the masses and of the masses to reality is a process of unlimited scope, as much for thinking as for perception.”
Personal experiences are seemingly limitless. Each one is inherently unique and when accumulated creates our own reality. In my work I utilize geometry and repetition as a tool to record my environment. This piece was shaped and molded by my time in Denmark.
Compared to other relationships in nature, personal relationships are relations between human and human.
People have interdependent behavior in a variety of situations or contexts.
We link up with each other.
In personal relationships, emotional capability is important.
Expressing feelings to others, reading others feelings well and sympathizing (sharing) with others.
Stare(observe), listen carefully, sympathize(share)
Action and consequence.
Is there a point of balance?”
My work explores the relationship between objects occupying physical space, and their interactions with the surrounding space. I am interested in the moment of realization, when the viewer recognizes a pattern, a tessellation or an inversion, and the way that this moment can alter the perception of the viewer.
My work represents an exploration into the language and symbolism of ceremonial objects and architecture through sculptural form, decoration, and design. Decoration and pattern are effective tools to activate physical space and engage the viewer in a psychological space. By building composite forms from modular elements the work simultaneously evokes qualities of natural growth and manipulated construction.
I am inspired by destroyed and collapsed forms.
Pressing the round shapes to different parts of my body.
Searching the boundaries when the shape almost falls apart.
Destroyed shapes start to transform in my hands to create something else, smooth and organic.
My work examines how we define self within the excess of a global culture. I am interested in the facade laid out in front of you and what changes behind it. I consider each piece a layer in a series, an item documenting a quest. The work is intended to build context and questions. Combining elements of photography, ceramics, and film, my work draws on politics, cultural generalities, the fake and the Kitsch.
Are you me?
Do we really know who we are?
Does it matter where we come from?
Are we judged by our gender?
Are we judged by our humanity?
Does any of this really matter?
Maybe we just need to go for a walk.
