Stephanie James-Manttan’s sculptural porcelain works are studies in light and balance. Her vessels evolve on the pottery wheel. Indenting the surface while wet, she transforms them into translucent, textural forms that have a soft woven-like characteristic. Influenced by indigenous basket weaving, her work is also informed by the inherent organic qualities of her chosen medium.
Alongside her exhibition work, James-Manttan makes a production line of tableware and has recently begun experimenting with other clay bodies such as stoneware and raku. She is co-founder of 6 Hands Studio in West Croydon and opened the retail space 3 Degrees West late last year. Her work is exhibited nationally and can be found in numerous leading Australian craft and design outlets, including at JamFactory, Council of Objects and One Small Room.
