London-based designer Benjamin Hubert’s ‘Seams’ is a collection of five large ceramic centrepieces with prominent seam lines on the surface.

“The slip casting mould has been split several times, introducing additional seam lines onto the surface of the product.” says Benjamin Hubert. “Rather than cleaning these seams from the product, as would be normal practice, they remain as decoration and in the condition they emerged from the mould. The components of the mould can be rotated to various positions for every piece produced, meaning no two are identical.”

The collection stems from the studio’s research into creating mass-produced products with one off details by manipulating a traditional ceramic manufacturing process. A study into the slip casting process led to the process utilised for Seams, which introduces decorative elements to the product without a secondary decorating process.

“Each of the vessels takes its shape from archetypal jar and bottle forms, referencing ceramic traditions. The colours and matte glaze are sympathetic to the forms, and keep the focus on the decorative seam elements.”
