Table Matters was a project intended to create a range of tableware inspired by multiple cultures. My range is a collaboration between Filipino and British culture. Inspired by Filipino eating habits: Group dining, variety of dishes, earthy 'homey' feeling.
The range is designed around a central piece reserved as a rice bowl which is the staple of any Asian diet and complementary vessels for meal accompaniments varying in size for secondary meat and vegetable dishes.
The British influence comes from the organisation of dining rituals translated in the clean form of the vessels and the floral patterning frequently present in traditional ceramic.
Materials: slab built earthenware, further raku fired for earthy aesthetic. Decorated with gilding liquid.
