Faye Malrie

BA (Hons) Artist Designer Maker: Glass and Ceramics | Class of 2021

Faye Malrie’s practice investigates and celebrates the fundamental relationship between artist and material as a conduit between conceptual activity and the corporeal world. Through poiesis- the activity in which a person brings something into being that did not exist before- she aims to understand her personal physical existence by examining the circumstances in which something moves from nothing into actuality. Clay’s varying levels of malleability and responsivity can require moment-by-moment improvisation and complete focus in the present, a harmony between the material and movements of the artist. Faye prefers to work without set intentions or the constraints of a preconceived design, instead, believing that clay, and the processes of handling clay, can be a catalyst for ideas just as much as internal concepts can motivate the physical process. Forms are determined by relation with the clay, mutually listening and responding, acknowledging a certain level of clay’s autonomy.
