Sand and Clay - new crafts

19th September 2013

Sand and clay seem to be in the air, clay blocks at Tent representing the most environmentally sound material to build with when you compare carbon emissions and 'Dug and Stuff' Peter Marigolds project - old but still so truly relevant and to top it all off the fantastic collection of objects from Max Lamb and Philippe Malouin at Paper Tiger on Exhibition road, titled Sand and Clay

Presenting fine bone china developments from the designers, each has been designed and crafted using very different processes and techniques.

Malouin has created a 3D printer using sand removing man and technology from the process whilst Lamb sticks to his path of exploring the true materiality in his making with his bone china that is cast from moulds that he has carved himself.

Both out comes are extremely beautiful and explore the continuing relationship with craft in and materiality.
