The Light Forge was born out of Katherine Glenday’s porcelain studio as a functional body of work that seeks to preserve Katherine’s imaginings and explorations in porcelain that she has continued to explore and hone for over 40 years. Alistair Blair, a student and close collaborator, now leads The Light Forge. He seeks to bring his own perspective while maintaining the qualities intrinsic to her work, namely her explorations of light, movement, and translucency in a collection of porcelain works intended for everyday use.
The vessels utilize natural elements from Kalk Bay, South Africa. Each with their own unique resonating sound and purity of form, these pieces result in a body of work that represents an endeavor in which the studio focuses and centralizes their ideas into a conversation that has, at its core, stillness, and tranquility.
