These creations of Thai-born, Australian-based ceramicist Somchai Charoen were part of the Preliminary Structures exhibition held in Melbourne earlier this year featuring seven contemporary makers and designers working in moulding and casting techniques across ceramic and glass disciplines. 

Master mould-maker and ceramicist Charoen looks to build connections through modular components. An amalgam of the urban landscape and the natural world, Charoen’s series entitled Growth stacks pigmented slip-cast porcelain in a linear arrangement.

The pieces can be broken down into smaller pieces and reconfigured in different ways. This experimentation with vertical layering and repetitive forms create bold and graphic sculptures while  reflecting on the fragility of nature.
