Crucible is a modular series based on a simple form; a round-bottomed cylinder, which can be resized for different functions. This drawing shows the key modification to an otherwise very basic shape; the circle that defines the curved underside is slightly offset above the centre point of the vessel, giving it lightness and lift.
These drawings are not designs as such, but an attempt to understand and consolidate 12 months of work throwing pots at the wheel, to identify a set of geometric rules and mechanisms which describe the refined forms and provide a framework for future exploration.
They are printed on a naturally off-white/grey paper with occasional flecks, and are designed to be framed against brilliant white to accentuate these qualities. If you would like to use my framing specifications, please get in touch.
