Harriet Caslin designs and makes ceramic lighting and tableware predominantly from slip cast porcelain. Drawing inspiration from midcentury design and op-art, her work explores the use and repetition of line to create fluid, immersive patterns which are translated to unique, functional and tactile homewares, finished with super soft satin glazes for everyday use. Also inspired by the use of light in her practice, Harriet has explored and developed techniques to push porcelain and its natural translucent quality to its limits in the production of her lighting, to achieve a transformative result from day to night.
Harriet says, “I love the idea of someone using one of my products and enjoying these considered details; how tactile the cup feels in your hands when drinking tea, how the porcelain light completely transforms when it’s switched on. To me this is what creates an enduring and enjoyable relationship between the owner and the functional objects that they use every day.”
