Project Description

Adrienne Eliades

My design-focused ceramic tableware sets the stage for emphasizing delight in eating experiences. Highlighting the desire for creating meaning in the mundane, my work celebrates the delicacy of being human and promotes the power of simple rituals that elevate the ordinary to the elegant. Combined construction methods of wheel throwing, hand-building, and slip casting create streamlined forms with clean lines and gentle organic curves punctuated by asymmetry. The surfaces are inspired by recurring motifs I observe in my environment. Patterns are all around us. Wallpaper, concrete screens, manhole covers, and security envelopes provide rich source materials of the marks people make on the world. Based on a visual language of color, texture, and shape, rather than words, patterns can evoke emotional responses connected to memory. Instinctively, humans translate and extrapolate patterns into their own interpretation. I harness the allure of the repeat pattern to captivate the user’s attention.
