Photo Journal: materiality, colour, surface

blackhouses-moorland-materiality

A bit of old rope… Here are a few of the pictures that I took while on Lewis, Scotland. It’s a small showcase of materials, techniques, colour & surface combinations that sum up some of the poetic bleakness, simplicity, tenacity and determination of the place. Things that get me excited. The next step is to explore how to use these observations. I’ll just leave them floating around & let serendipity help things along.

Review – Today at the Hepworth

made-by-today-reviewSearlait McCrea from Today stopped by our stand at the Hepworth Summer Fair and wrote this lovely review:

Sunken Studio’s display at markets and fairs is really one that I DARE you to try pass without stopping. The playful use of pattern and stripped back colour range really makes the products pop. Once you’re in (because like I said, I don’t know how you couldn’t stop for a proper snoop), it’s obvious these wares are the making of a master. The quality of work(wo)manship and obviously extremely considered, yet seemingly simple design is what really draws me to Sunken Studio products.

As well as beautiful handmade homewares and accessories, Sunken Studio run a dizzying amount of workshops, classes and events for both young and not so young people of any ability, so you too can have a go at your own ceramic creations!

Ceramic Petri Dishes

If you love colour, you might like these. I’m currently working on three sizes of ceramic petri-style dishes for The Hepworth Wakefield Contemporary Ceramics Fair in May. Available in red, yellow, orange and blue and diameters 10cm, 15cm and 20cm (approximately). These images are of work in progress. The colours look neon – they’ll still be bright when finished but not this bright…

Colour and Surface

Accidental colour inspiration. Out and about teaching myself how to take photographs – Achilles Heel. Many of the photos are out of focus – tripod next time – but some interesting colour combos have come out of it. Continue reading Colour and Surface
