One of the many things I love about being a designer and maker is seeing the work of others. In this series of monthly posts I will showcase some of the makers and artists that have inspired both me and my work | Part 1 | Vessels
Vessels have been a big part of my inspiration since studying design at university. I'm fascinated by the history of them, their functionality and sculptural nature. They are made to contain something, very often they are made to function within our daily lives, and for this reason they are an endless inspiration to artists and designers.
On this page I have assembled a collection of makers that all use their practices to explore the vessel. Each specialises in their own material: wood, metal or ceramic, resulting in unique, highly crafted pieces. Some are conceptual, and some are functional, all of them are beautiful.
