Pepite Store - 17th of July - 5th of August

This sculptural series draws from an interest in alien habitats, imagining the rocky terrain in archaeological sites coinciding with alien architecture and foreign organic matter. By digitally constructing each sculpture using building information modelling software, each piece’s 3D information was unrolled and transferred to clay, with a combination of wheel thrown, hand built and slab formed elements. Through rigorous testing and research, a unique combination of clay blends and homemade glazes were created to imitate natural, architectural and alien textures, with some pieces airbrushed to create shimmering effects that change colour depending on viewing angle.
