About

The Black Sliced Sphere blurs the boundary between a functional vase and a sculptural object. Created as part of the Soft, Soft Hard 2018 Collection, this pieces is an exploration into form and the relationship between the wheel and hand building, with a nod to mid century sculptors. This piece is thrown on the wheel and later hand built into and manipulated. This one-of-a-kind objects were debuted at London Design Fair 2018's British Craft Pavilion – a curated selection of the UK's emerging artists. The work is crafted in a Black Vulcan stoneware that fires to a beautifully rich dark brown color. The Sliced Sphere is decorated with porcelain slip to give it a tactile, organic nature. This artwork is intended to show the hand of the maker featuring distressed slip and textured clay.

About The Maker

Bikis Ceramics

Bikis Ceramics

View Profile
Bikis Ceramics is created by ceramic artist Naomi Bikis. The work blurs the boundary between sculptural objects and functional vessels. Bikis’ studio practice incorporates research into form, focusing on altering wheel-thrown pieces, slicing them, and hand building back into the shapes. These pieces explore the relationship between the perfection of the wheel and the mark of the maker’s hand. Predominantly they are created to work together as groups or pairings, with the focus on both the spherical, flowing forms and the negative space between the altered works. Together, with slip and underglaze, the work evokes a sense of tactility and recalls the qualities of the ancient earth they were made with. Based in East London, tucked away in an old Victorian mews, Bikis creates one-of-a-kind pieces, ensuring that no two items are identical. Each piece retains its own idiosyncrasies and has a handmade feel that is unique to each of the works.
