Researching Contemporary Ceramics
Anyways, here's the Dutch product/ceramic artist and designer, Ruth Lodder's work- which I think is really lovely. It's interesting how she caught onto the trend of using 'found objects', in her case various jello molds, glasses, teacups, etc., then stacked them together to create her molds from. Very clever and really lovely as you get all those references to classic shapes that are easily recognizable without being too simplistic! The gold luster and patches of colour are also great- I'm always one to want to use colour to make my work my own and in her case, I think its stunning!
