PHOEBE COLLINGS-JAMES - MUD BELLY
I am a sculptor working across mediums to realize work that explores major universal themes: violence, sexuality, desire and fear. Having studied fine art in London, my first experience with ceramics was in 2014 during the Nuove artist residency in Italy. I was immediately struck by the intensely transformative quality of ceramics and the haptic communication it encourages. I continued to study wheel thrown and hand built techniques while living in Brooklyn, enveloping ceramic forms into my performance work, installations and domestic objects. I have since moved home to East London, to continue my ceramics journey in the neighborhood I grew up in.
Mud belly is the gut of my ceramics practice and research, please get in touch for collaborations or commissions. firstname.lastname@example.org
