'WARM' - tea / coffee series

 
 
[Brian Keaney: Warm]

 
 
For this Diploma work a tea/coffee range and a set of storage jars were created, which combine ceramic and laminated bent elm wood and cork. The wood acts as a handle and insulator for the cups and 2 sizes of tea/coffee pots. Also included in the range are a sugar bowl, milk jug, 3 sizes of storage jars and a plate. With the exception of the plate all the other objects fire with either the cup or tea pots resting by their shoulders on the potís /jugís rims. This was an innovative aspect of the design saving energy and space during firing. Another aspect of the project was the subject of rituals. The work was developed to production stage so that it is ready to be produced in a small studio. Processes used in making the pieces were casting and jiggering. 

Lopputyöni käsittelee tee/kahvi astiaston sekä säilytyspurkkien suunnittelua ja toteutusta jossa yhdistetään kivitavaraa, puuta ja korkkia. Laminoitu ja taivutettu jalava jonka varassa esineet seisovat, toimii myös eristävänä kahvana. Työn toteutuksen yhteydessä on otettu huomioon pienen keramiikkastudion tuotantomenetelmät. Esineet ovat valmistettu joko valaamalla tai koneellisesti muovaamalla.
