Assemble: Nature Refined - Harriet Elkerton
Add some info about this item
Harriet Elkerton’s objects, with their unassuming simplicity, are designed for living. Natural materials, plants and food play a key role in this lifestyle.
Her functional objects are slip-cast porcelain, with unctuous glossy white glazed interiors. Originating from paper, instability is established in the process, resulting in organic forms. Harriet sets up moments of unexpectedness, to get a handmade feel, an individuality, from repetition.
Her decorative ware, displayed nestles amongst the functional, interrogates the purpose of tools and functional items. She combines found objects, with purpose – made porcelain additions. The inheritance of these objects discernible in her functional vessels; there is a language of deliberate skill speaking through her work and a desire to keep visible the hand of the maker.
Fi Chappelle is the maker behind FICH ceramics. All her work is hand-thrown in her home studio in Oxfordshire on a pottery wheel. FICH ceramics is a contemporary brand with each piece adding elegance and style into your home.
Fi emphasises the contrast between the matte white earthenware clay and the smooth, reflective glaze by only partly glazing the pieces. The FICH colour palette changes seasonally creating a look that adapts with time. This has given the brand a unique style and keeps FICH looking contemporary.
