Self Defined Project
Create a tea sharing experience designed to encourage mindfulness within daily routines, allowing connection with others over simple shared experiences.
Materials and Processes
Initial sketching showing a range of vessels, pourers and cups. Experimenting with tessellating forms to create connection between individual cups.
Finalising the design after discussion and feedback from the intended users. Creating a refined sketch demonstrating how the tea pourer is 'shared from the same pot'.
Wood turning process
Creating the centrepiece. Using templates to turn plaster originals on the lathe, creating three-part plaster moulds, slip casting in porcelain and creating the channels before glazing.
A demonstration of how the water flows through the centrepiece and down into the individual cups. A celebration of materials, processes and the 'handmade' - encouraging connection between users and objects.
