Assemble; work that blurs the boundary between sculptural objects and functional vessels.

Bikis Ceramics is created by ceramic artist Naomi Bikis. Bikis’ studio practice incorporates research into form, focusing on altering wheel-thrown pieces, slicing them, and hand building back into the shapes. These pieces explore the relationship between the perfection of the wheel and the mark of the maker’s hand. Predominantly they are created to work together as groups, with the focus on both the bulbous, blob-like and squashed forms and the negative space between these altered works. Together with slip and underglaze, the work evokes a sense of tactility and recalls the qualities of the ancient earth they were made with.
