About the Artist
James Pegg’s new series of work continues to explore 'Action Casting' and the inherent connections between form, colour and movement. The work is in a constant state of creation, a direct embodiment of the balance between spontaneous gestures and controlled colour. In every part of the process lies an element of chance, from the pressure and speed at which the stained porcelain slip makes contact with the plaster mould to the interaction between the layers of different colours. This collection also begins to look at the relationship of vessel and canvas, how similar use of dynamic and explosive colour is expressed through both three dimensional shapes and flat ceramic canvasses.
James studied Textile Design at Glasgow School of Art before moving to London to complete his MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins. For the past decade James has been a Fashion Design Tutor and Course Leader at London College of Fashion. His ceramics practice was born out of the desire to create something more permanent than fabric yet embody the same expressions of colour and surface. James (JDPCeramics) currently works out of The Arches Studios in Peckham, London.
