About the work:
Shape Candle Holder in Terracotta with Rust Lava Glaze by Oh Hey Grace.
This handmade candle holder was created using hand-building techniques in terracotta clay, finished with a rust lava glaze.
Brown describes her sculptures as “a collection of utopian silhouettes and cityscapes as a response to the often-dystopian reality outside, with inspiration stemming from science fiction, fallen civilisations and imaginary architecture from the painter Minoru Nomata”. She also notes: “an important part of my work is encouraging playful interaction, allowing the viewer to transport themselves to another time, place, or universe”.
About the Artist:
Grace Brown of Oh Hey Grace creates a mix of functional and sculptural pieces using a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. Influenced by geometry, contrasting textures, architectural forms and the work of M.C. Escher, her work is part functional ware and part Utopian cityscapes with labyrinth-like buildings featuring layers of geometric stairwells, sharp lines, smooth adobe domes and archways.
