About the Makers:
Soma is a collaborative manifestation of Fox, Hirst and White in their respective crafts; metal, glass and ceramics. Fox is a contemporary jeweller, incorporating enamel into wearable and sculptural pieces. Hirst is a glass artist that spans glass blowing, casting and installations that encompass utilitarian and sculpture artworks. White is a ceramicist who focuses on hand-built sculptural and functional biomorphic forms.
The three artists have created a dynamic collection of pendant lighting, uniting their individual practices in a design that is suspended between the timeless and the contemporary. Soma draws parallels between the fluid forms of each artist’s individual practice and celebrates the natural beauty of the contrasting surfaces of the combined materials and their contrasting. Using the repetition of three throughout the work, Soma is held together in a symbiotic balance of shape and form, the bold tones of black creating a striking silhouette. Each form of the pendant is purposely individualised to create a moody and delicate luminosity.
Available for shipment or collection from 7 July 2022.
