In 2001, James Oughtibridge graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art and has, since then, has carried out various private and public commissions, including the Presidential Suite at the Grosvenor Hotel, London. His current range of vessel forms is constructed using curved slab sections of clay that are constructed with numerous planes and perspectives, inviting a world of contorted shadows. In addition, his pieces often appear to float with no visible flat base, creating a tension within their surroundings.
