The Crucible range was developed in collaboration with Cush Cush gallery in Bali. The collection’s origins stem from an ongoing sculptural practice which explores the gentle curves and radii found in the erosive shaping of geological forms in nature. The generation of the collection began through the production of a series of watercolour and oil pastel sketches of bowl-like forms that contemplated the idea of what constitutes a ‘vessel’. These studies sought to produce forms that translate simple utilitarian functions into a metaphorical dimension. The finished collection acts as a rumination on the primal relationships between ritual and craft, a fusion of functional, sculptural, material and archetypal concerns.
