Bianka Groves
Grounded in functionality and design, I make useable objects that are quiet and simple which all but go unnoticed. Repetition compliments the honesty of skill and craft but allows for a development of new ideas. I work slowly to produce clean forms and lines but then add hints of imperfection to give both the personality of the handmade and also to allow a moment to pause and admire. Playing with line creates subtle elements of designs from landscapes and architecture. This creates a movement that brings us closer to the object outside of its utility. Decoration and adornment are kept minimal while still allowing an elegant style that embraces its function for daily life. My pots are to use and to look at. The ideas of the Arts and Crafts movement as well as Mid-Century Modern Design guide my hand with the importance of craftsmanship and also leave me with a calming feeling that I hope is reflected in my work.,h_400,c_fill/aadlxddu8p1vtd9rpszs.jpg
