As the reassessment of Brutalism gathers pace we are excited to discover the ceramic sculptures of Bethany Stafford.
Blocks of brightly coloured and highly polished porcelain are bound together using elastic bands to create compositions which recall the monolithic concrete forms of Brutalist architecture. Reduced to these simple shapes and highlighted by their candied hues, these sculptural blocks are a timely reminder of the beauty of simple geometric forms.
Bethany Stafford is a graduate of Nottingham Trent University (BA Decorative Arts) and the Brutalist Inspired Ceramics is part of her graduation project.
The Agatha suspension light from LZF shows how a malleable material such as natural wood veneer can be used to create highly sculptural forms. On the other hand, the use of glass in the Standard Pendant light from Menu helps to highlight the strength of the geometric shapes. The Table Tower table light from Frederik Roije is another beautiful example of minimalist, sculptural shapes translated into a light.
Sculptural shapes work very well for table accessories. Make a statement with the Slide serving tray from Finell, the machine collection porcelain jar from Diesel Living or the Tip Top tray from Ghidini 1961.
