John Ritchie a Coleg Sir Gar ceramic graduate is showcasing his work at New Designers at the Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street N1, London between 27th & 30th June.
'I create abstract ceramic sculptures inspired by architecture and the phenomenon of entropy. The making process begins by producing casts from architectural salvage, then constructing sculptures from handmade ceramic elements. I aim to draw the viewer into an aesthetic and social conversation about the material world we construct and deconstruct. Through complex layering of ceramic objects, surfaces and images the sculptures point towards the social and cultural irony at play within our built and rural landscapes.'
