Vanessa Hogge

Working predominantly in porcelain, Vanessa Hogge crafts her one-off flower heads and vessels in her studio in Cockpit Arts Holborn. At once organic and ornate, spontaneous and stylised, she takes an instinctive, visceral approach to each piece, painstakingly sculpting every petal and anther by hand so that no two flowers are identical. 
The efflorescent flowers are created in porcelain and black clay, and are fired to high temperatures to create brittle, ossified shades of white and lava-like black.
