I.N.A.E.ENT ceramics

Jun 24 2013, 2:30 pm 0 Alex Roosen

I.N.A.E.Ent (Short for “It’s Not Anything Exactly Enterprises”) is a company by interdisciplinary artist Laura C. Hewitt. Based in Alaska, Laura specialises in creating wonderful ceramics that explore the relationships between nature and technology. I have chosen some pieces which I think are really fantastic; I love the organic shapes of the ceramic pieces and the fact that┬átheir designs are inspired by such diverse things as mapping Mars, binary code, vintage typewriter marks, astronomy, topography and flow charts. I love the fact that the pieces can be seen as a new spin on the industrial aesthetic and the fact that everyday objects are transformed by their conception and design into usable works of art. I also like the variety of techniques that are employed in creating the pieces, from hand throwing the ceramics to using vintage typewriters for embossing, hand carving and the use of glazes that evoke ink wash drawings. The pieces (some taken from Laura’s collection “Pattern Recognition”) often include hidden touches, for example, the binary code patterns of some of the pieces can be translated into famous monologues. The cups, bowls and plates make me think of what steampunk astronauts would use at breakfast time or what explorers in a dystopian future would drink from as they conducted their field work.
