Really interesting textural pieces made from a build up of multiples. I like the fact the colour palette has been kept to just white.

More images of the inside/outside of the industrial buildings that the work was shown in. I found the industrial and neglected appearance of the rooms and exterier really inspiring.

Fantastic multiple component pieces by Mella Shaw. So effective, the complexity of the piece through the build up of lots of tiny fragile looking bricks is balanced out by the simple + subtle use of colour. Having said this though, there is still a complexity to it, but the clever thing is that it comes across as simple.

Really like the bold use of colour here - blocks & areas of colour along sider rough unfired clay.

Really interesting piece - unfored clay pot made from a mix of locally dug clay, left on a hill top to slowly degrade and be re-absorbed into the landscape.
Gives me ideas of experimenting with my natural clay - making hollow bricks and building a structure back where it was dug..?

Massive influence to me - the architectural forms, how they build up to create simple but complex structures. I love the texture, colour, shape.

Stine Jespersen.

Jespersen’s bodies of work always deal with multiples, and creating an object out of these multiples. This use of repitition of an identical form is hugely effective and creates stunning pieces of work - here are two of my favourites.

Such high quality work. Gorgeous forms, the use of multiples being massively effective.

Wim Borst.

Love all of Borst’s work. These are part of his most recent collection, but I find his early work equally as interesting. Highly influenced by Dutch geometric abstraction, all his work contain simplicity, strong forms combined with geometric shape. These pieces really interest me, they remind me of industrial elements such as concrete and pipeworks. I really love the quality he’s achieved by adding natural matter to his clay. Such clean and refined forms.

The inclusion of aggregate and natural matter to make a textures clay body has really influenced my recent experimentation into material tests.

'My work draws inspiration from many disparate sources including engineering, architecture the geology, archaeology and ritual. I am interested in challenging and pushing boundaries, continually seeking new material qualities and processes; striving to make work that has visual richness whilst conveying a sense of quietness and simplicity - the exclusion of the inessential. I also hope my work has an ambiguity, possibly suggestive of ritual or ceremony, yet ultimately leaving open questions of purpose or meaning.’ David Binns
LOVE Binns’ work. Strong form, colour variation & texture come together to create what to me is a hugely succesful and visually interesting piece of work. I also find his written piece about his practice hugely interesting, and very simillar to what I am interested in. I have bolded the parts that particularly relate to my own interests.
