Eluned Glyn is a Welsh Ceramic Designer and Maker, living and working in Cardiff, UK.
Her background in Fine Art, Ceramic and an interest in all things Cubist has led her to her current Collection -
Eluned Glyn is inspired by the form of classic ceramics from the 20th and 21st Century. The modernist and cubist movements have been her points of reference, using their concept of a well-considered form that concentrates on the bare fundamental values of design as inspiration.
The Minimus Maximus teaset is a homage to Victorian Ceramics. By re-creating similar forms and recognisable handles, there is a chance encounter between newly created ceramic objects and their ancestors.
The ghost like simplicity of these pieces reflect the redundancy of colour that are typically absent in modernist design. The forms speak for themselves, and the decorative, colourful qualities of Victorian ceramics are cast aside - leaving a faint trail of past influences to these contemporary ceramic objects.
It is the marriage of form and function that intrigues her and the distortion of the domestic object which is familiar yet foreign in form.
