Beautifully experimental and imperfect ceramics by Jessica Hans

Beautifully experimental and imperfect ceramics by Jessica Hans

Jessica Hans is a ceramic artist wrangling clay in ways we have never seen before. Working out of her studio in Philadelphia, she works at creating vessels which are, frankly, the opposite of what most ceramicists are aiming for. Instead of even, perfect curves and clean glazes, Jessica’s pots, planters and cups err on the side of the raw, lopsided, unconventionally textured and misshapen. They’re beautiful in their imperfections and tasty tactility, and we can’t get enough.

Her experimental approach to ceramics is rooted in her background in interdisciplinary art and textile design. Jessica was...


Refreshing, imaginative collages and jewellery by Holly Leonardson

Refreshing, imaginative collages and jewellery by Holly Leonardson

There is a special place in our hearts for the kind of work that takes us back to being a kid. Getting out the boxes of crayons, paint, plastic scissors and glitter and running them over sheets and sheets of paper with reckless abandon.

Holly Leonardson is a visual artist whose work transports us with these special feelings. After stints in Brisbane, Tasmania and Melbourne over...

Max straddles the terms designer, maker and artist. Skipping across the commercial design and art worlds, his work bounces from exhibitions throughout Europe to some of the...


Rose Eken injects magic into the everyday with her ceramics

Rose Eken injects magic into the everyday with her ceramics

Danish artist Rose Eken is a woman after our own hearts with her beautiful, off-kilter renditions of real life objects. Working out of her studio in Copenhagen, Rose uses ceramics to re-create the familiar objects and tableaux of modern life, and the things we surround ourselves with.

She takes seemingly boring, everyday objects like coffee cups, cigarettes, food and clothing, and freezes them in time. We suddenly realise in looking at Rose’s work, that these so-called banal objects which she focusses on are actually instilled with meaning, memories and narratives that are often held quite close...
