Mountainscape Vessels

The deep greens of rainforests during monsoon season, and the indigo blue mountains, hazy, fading into the distant sky. My most recent collection, ‘Mountainscapes’ in ‘Indigo’ & ‘Monsoon’, are inspired by the wild and colourful Taiwanese landscape.

Great mountains filled with life and luscious plantations, gorges and precipitous valleys, rugged volcanic coast lines cascading into the sea.

The work makes use of layering, using lines of colour to softly echo these perspectives and depths… conjuring memories of vast mountainous landscapes, their enormity creating moments of tranquility.

The development of this work began during a residency in Taiwan, New Taipei City Yingge Ceramic Museum, during the summer, 2019. Each piece is made in porcelain using a combination of slip casting, jigger jollying and throwing techniques. The coloured stains which create the mountainscapes in indigo blue and monsoon green were collected during my time in Taiwan. With only a glazed interior, the work is fired to 1280° and then lightly hand polished.

‘I am fascinated by industrial process and adapt traditional casting techniques to make handcrafted design. I am excited by how an extensive understanding into a craft offers the opportunity to push and explore a material, and challenge a process. I make ceramic and glass objects which consider the domestic and ritual of everyday life, however the pieces I make are not always traditionally functional and often allow only for reflection.’

MEET THE MAKER

Celia Dowson

Celia Dowson is a London based artist working in both ceramics and cast glass. Inspired by the movement in nature her work reflects the colours, the changing light, and mystery of the natural world. Porcelain vessels, embedded with mark and gesture, capture an evolving landscape. Fascinated by industrial processes Celia adapts traditional modelling and casting techniques to make bespoke pieces to use and display. Techniques used in both the making of glass and ceramics are crossed and re-applied so that unique forms and surface finishes are achieved.

Celia Dowson graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2018 specialising in both ceramics and cast glass. She received a BA (Hons) in Ceramic Design from the University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins, 2014. Her most recent exhibitions include Young Masters at London Glass Blowing 2020, Collect 2020 at Somerset House and Future Heritage 2019 at Decorex International. Celia’s work is part of two museum collections, Bullseye Projects in Portland, USA and the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan, where she completed a 3 month ceramics residency in 2019.
