Hello my name is Angharad and im a student of 3D Design and craft specialising in ceramics and surface pattern. My third year project, Wavering space is a materiality investigation into the use of porcelain and light. This project focuses on the concepts of using natural movement, light and porcelain to create an impression on an interior space.
The development of this research looks at using natural movement as a factor of relaxation, using organic surface patterns and colour to enhance the effect of natural daylights impression on porcelain. Using primary field work from local rural places I have been designing transform a space with ceramics and light and bring new ideas on how we can grasp natural movement and bring it into an interior space. It is important to me and others that a home is a comfortable and place of relaxation, I have aimed to make centrepieces that revolutionize and highlight the importance of natural daylight, space and openness in an interior.
Colour is a major part of this project, I experimented with colour using different slips, glazes and stains, investigating blends and tones of colours to create simple yet effective colour pallets and ambiences suitable for my making and impression I wanted to make. The project slowly flows into a development of using a more organic approach to the making and characteristics of my porcelain hangings, vases and light catchers.
Material research has been a thoroughly important part into my journey using light with ceramics. It was important I tested out both geometric and organic forms and idea, Immersing myself into the natural environments. The principle is the collaboration of porcelain, light and my forms bringing life into a lifeless environment maintaining a character and aesthetic.
