What's on:

“Art appeals to the creativity in people of all ages and abilities. In anything created as functional, sculptural or decorative, there is no right and wrong in its beauty. Ceramic Fusions was founded to make art accessible in everyday life, to anyone and everyone. 

CreativeInc in Cayman Islands * offers Ceramic courses and workshops as well as 'detox' sessions to enable mental health and well-being. The process of creation develops a focused mind with targeted coordination. We celebrate everyone’s uniqueness through the art they create. It is an opportunity to give something back and it motivates my creativity and energy to another level. '' 

www.theCreativeInc.org 

Welcome

Ceramic Fusions is the outcome of a ceramic sculptor's dream to make art accessible to everyone; by creating art that can be useful and available. Everyday functional ware can be designed and created to have sculptural aesthetics,  that can be appreciated by anyone, not just by art connoisseurs and art critics.

All works are handmade on the potter's wheel or by slab-building using porcelain or stoneware clay.After a bisque fire in the electric kiln at a temperature of 950 - 1060 Celcius, the final glaze finish is fired at 1220 - 1300 C degrees. The clay strength, endurance and quality of finish make the products hard-wearing and fit for use in the microwave, dishwasher and outdoors. This is also a platform that helps to raise funds for international charities.

 

How

Driven by her belief that everyday functional ware can also be art with sculptural aesthetics and thus be appreciated by everyone, Geetha strives to make art that is functional and yet sculptural in form.

 

The influence of her technical background on her ceramic designs, her hybrid origin in Singapore with Chinese and Indian parents and her travel adventures from Asia to Europe and the US have inspired her creations; hence, the Ceramic Fusion. 

 

Inspired by everyday moments, each piece is individually handcrafted, with a touch of her own personality added to the process. 

Mostly thrown on the wheel in porcelain or stoneware clay, each base piece is modified by hand to achieve her final design. They are then bisque fired to 950-1060C degrees in an electric kiln, glazed and re-fired to 1220-1300C.

'' When I create in any medium, my world comes alive.  

Throwing on the wheel is a happy hypnotic meditation that I am addicted to.

Most of my work are born out of throwing binges, sometimes 20 to 30 pots in a day. That's how much I enjoy getting grounded in that process. And achieving symmetry in the mud is my Zen.

Anything and everything I absorb from everyday life, whether it's people, experiences, interactions, feelings or thoughts, they all seep out into my clay. 

I hope you enjoy using and wearing my designs that I enjoy making with my entire being. '' 

 

 

About

Ceramic Fusions was founded in the summer of 2011 by Geetha Alagirisamy after several exhibitions of her ceramic sculptures and jewelry during her final year at the University of Essex. But her love affair with clay began back in 2002.Biennale

Trained as a computer engineer in networks and security, Geetha studied computer science in Singapore despite harbouring an innate inclination for the arts. After travelling in Australasia, she moved to England and Europe, where she operated her professional practice as an IT Consultant and Project Manager, whilst supporting her interest in the visual arts.

During her time in Europe, she worked full time on technical projects with the Olympic Committee and various organisations of the United Nations such as the UNHCR (Refugee Agency), WTO (World Trade Organsation), ILO (International Labour Organisation), UNICC (Int'l Computing Centre) and WIPO (Intellectual Property) and several other NGOs.

In order to continue and complete her final year of sculptural studies at the Essex University, Geetha set up a ceramic-kiln studio in her Swiss loft where she sculpted in the evenings and commuted by car to England over the weekends to consult with her professor. 

Since receiving her Masters in Sculpture in 2012, Geetha's sculptures have been selected for international exhibitions in the US and Europe, including the Ceramics Annual of America in San Francisco, the Florence Biennale in Italy and the Tokyo International Art Fair in 2015. http://www.alagirisamy.com charts her journey in sculptural ceramic art. Read her latest interview with LandEscape Art.

Hailing from a crreative lineage with four generations of goldsmithing artisans, including her father, she remains focused on porcelain and stoneware as her preferred medium for both her sculptural and functional works. Geetha's designs have a technical lean and most often, her creations are unconventional with contrasting elements at the conceptual levels, crossbreeding sculpture with functional form and design.

'Kreative' Kids Lab: Click courses below for details

 

Children instinctively use their hands and fingers to knead, pinch and mould clay. By offering your child the opportunity to create with their hands, they get to expand their imagination through kinesthetic play. 

 

Children learn best when their senses are engaged. The lessons focus on what sparks the child's curiousity, and clay is the medium we use to enable the child to create realistic, fantasy and abstract works.

 

By guiding them to create clay artworks as a reflection of themselves, this inquiry-based programme develops a more confident and assured child.
