Outline:

Taking influence from forms in modern architecture, James Robson Ceramics creates a diverse range of plaster slabs that are then used to construct three-dimensional moulds. These moulds then allow James to produce a variety of one-off cast pieces that have both sculptural and functional qualities. 

James was introduced to slip-casting during his course and was keen to incorporate in to much more individual, sculptural work. As a result, he began to develop a unique way of casting ceramic. 

Due to the complexity and innovative process through which each vessel is made, each one is individually unique. Each piece is created in a custom built mould that, one opened to extract the object, cannot be re-used or replicated. James lets the mould take it's own shape and if he wants to replicate it, begins to fully understand how it was created in order to achieve the same identity again.
