Rhiannon Ewing-James graduated with a BA Hons Contemporary Applied Arts from Ulster University and currently holds the position of Creative Producer for the British Ceramics Biennial. She additionally writes, contributing manuscripts towards publications and articles for international magazines and online platforms. She was awarded the Muriel Gahan Scholarship that funded research in the Rosenthal Archives in the Porzellanikon Museum, Selb in 2015 and has conducted artistic and design research during international residencies and workshops.
Her work is concerned with how the general European community relate to the materials and objects engrained in their everyday lives. With an intensely saturated and new relationship with materials, such as plastic, a ‘throw away’ culture has been created due to cheap manufacture. Whereas, we have historical relationships with other materials, such as ceramics, porcelain and concrete.
She hopes to inspire a familiar tactile experience through the experimental combination of contrasting materials inspired by tableware. The use of concrete and porcelain in contrast with plastic illustrates the importance of materials rooted in our everyday and historical European culture.
