Marta Bordes from Central Saint Martins - Do Masters

Marta is a Spanish-born, London-based architect and designer who just graduated from the MA Design Ceramics, Furniture and Jewellery degree course at Central Saint Martins. With a background in architecture, Marta has approached ceramics from a different perspective, questioning the physical qualities, applications and limits of the material. For example, ceramics is rarely seen in movement or as part of a mechanism. Marta’s Elastic Lights challenges this by creating a collection of articulated lamps that brings movement and play into ceramics, questioning the role of traditional ceramic objects.
