I absolutely love how today’s creative (@ceramicrroom on Instagram) describes their organic process and practice, which results in these incredibly funky and futuristic pieces.
Please may you introduce yourself and your practice.
My name is Nina Godfrey, I’m the owner of Ceramic Room, I’m 22 and I live in the north of England. My practice is creating hand crafted ceramic homeware, mainly candlesticks and vases. I use air dry clay for all my pieces.
How did you develop your practice?
The idea for Ceramic Room began in my 3rd year of uni when I started experimenting with materials like jesmonite and resin, making candlesticks through silicone moulds. I came to a creative block pretty quickly as creating the same form over and over got really boring. I’d dabbled in building with clay throughout collage/uni but it was only after I’d graduated that I decided air dry clay was the one for me! I chose to work with air dry clay as it enables me to be able to work from home (I don’t own a kiln) in my home studio. It can also be sculpted into any form which I love as it means there are no limits to what I can make. 🙂
What inspires you and why do you love your practice?
I get inspiration from a lot of things, to list a few I love looking on pinterest at unique interiors and how people style their homes, I also look at a lot of sculpture. I’d say I get inspired by things that look imperfect, I love anything that looks like it has been made by someones hands.
What does it mean to you to be a creative feminist?
To me being a creative feminist means being a female who creates the work they love and want to make for themselves! It’s so demotivating to make work you are not happy with just to please someone else (uni!) So I’ll never be doing that again!!
