Amelia’s Magazine | Royal College of Art MA Degree Show 2012 Review: Ceramics & Glass

RCA show John Rainey 2

RCA show 2012 John Rainey

Finally, following on from Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery and Textiles I moved on to the Ceramics part of the show, where I was most impressed by John Rainey’s alien-like sculptures, which explore the impact of our increasingly virtualized systems of living on our conceptions of ourselves and others.

RCA show 2012 Solomia Zoumaras

I loved Solomia Zoumaras’ clever salad bowl which incorporated the salad servers into the shape of the bowl.

RCA show 2012 Zemer Peled

Zemer Peled had created interesting surfaces on forms, which again looked more like sculptures, by assembling broken ceramic pieces.

RCA show 2012 'Dinner on the Seabed' by Simone Perrotte

And our last pick is Simone Perrotte’sDinner on the Seabed‘, whose vision for this project is to create a whole dining experience where the patterns on the ceramic objects will be extended onto the tablecloth and wall paper creating a dialogue between the objects and their surroundings – she even wants to collaborate with a chef to create a similar looking menu, which is a lovely idea.
