Meet Georgia, the creator of GB Ceramics.
Georgia designs and makes functional tableware with the intention for the user to treat my products as their go to – “I like the idea of people becoming ergonomically attached to the items I make, something they invest in and really love and enjoy using in day to day life.
“I have a modern take on the old Japanese technique of Nerikomi – pigments are mixed into wet clay, integrating the colour throughout, the coloured clays are layered and compressed to construct a solid block with a pattern running through the inside. The design is revealed when the block is sliced in a cross section. I attach the patterned clay as handles or spouts onto thrown bodies such as mugs, jugs etc. each slice I take from the block of nerikomi is slightly different making every piece individual”.
