J Kay Aplin – Architectural Ceramics
Essentially, his work is a product of his preoccupation with the metamorphic process. By exploiting the chemical and structural elements of the ceramic medium he seeks to create a synthetic response to his observations of the relationship between biological and psychological transformation. It is this experimentation with the anatomy and architecture of the fired artefact that mostly captures his imagination, and which reminds him of the frailty of the human form and condition. His visual and conceptual references predominantly addresses the subject of our corporeality, and often attempts to expose a beauty within what is generally considered as repulsive and unpleasant.
He is currently doing his Masters in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art.
