I am a young independent artist and maker, and I have started my own design business, EmporiumJulium, after my graduation from Edinburgh College of Art in 2014.
The work presented is the fruit of my latest innovative work with ceramics.
Over the past two years I have developed my own ceramic design aesthetics, based on individually creating bespoke organic linocut stamps and imprinting them in pattern into soft clay – in a technique I named Linoramics.
The plates exhibited are entirely hand-made and glazed, with a distinctive design composition and restricted palette. They are focusing on the relationship between structural order and symmetry on one hand, and individual imperfection and diversity on the other.
The individual lino-cut stamps are organically developed and intuitively transferred onto clay and glazed, whereas the overall pattern layout is inspired by strict geometrical composition, resonant of both natural as well as artificial order.
Also on display are earrings, necklaces and a brooch created in a similar design and hand-crafting process, which makes each piece unique, yet still part of a rounded collection.
I have recently joined Edinburgh Ceramic Workshop collective and I hope to expand the collection with several challenging new pieces in a similar themes in the coming months.
