Preliminary Structures presented seven contemporary makers and designers working with moulding and casting techniques across ceramic and glass disciplines. The exhibitors combined studio and industrial making methods to create work that experiments with modularity, materiality, repetition, surface and form.
The works explore new ideas and concerns as investigated through mould making processes, and reflect on craft’s complicated relationship to industry, sculpture, design and architecture. The exhibition challenged preconceived ideas of industrial perfection and replication, and repositions these preliminary structures for their craftsmanship and artform.
