'THE STUDY OF BLUE'
Sep '18 - March '19
An investigation into how architectural archetypical forms, can have an impact on the 'interplay between light and shadow' that is exhibit by colour. Using ceramic slip cast objects, finished with initial results from blue glaze research, explore how colour and glaze can respond to graphic styles and bold form.
'The Study of Blue' was a project, that used the colour 'blue' as a way to explore research done about how visual perception of sculpture and installation can lead to meaningful and individual experiences.
Blue Glaze and Finish Research
Along side the development of architectural forms, the project employed the preliminary research results of how colour can be achieved in ceramics, through different means. Here, objects use a variety of ceramic 'finishes' some developed for the project its self, others as part of ongoing research into ceramic glaze. These finishes range from crystalline glazes - dry matt glazes - barium blues - ceramic stains.
