Luke Sisk uses ceramics and glass as a means of documenting events and places, past and present. By physically taking impressions from sites of interest, he captures and preserves a moment in time or place of significance, in a tactile way that cannot be achieved through image, word or sound.
His Báidín collection (‘little boat’) of functional ceramics draws inspiration from the sea, which informs much of his creative process. The collection is also influenced by a minimal, Northern European design aesthetic. Created in Ming Porcelain and white stoneware, the collection has a smooth streamlined finish with an interchangeable colour palette derived from glazes that have an association with specific locations along the coast of Ireland.
