Come along to our open studio on 30 June from 5pm – 7pm to see the processes and work artists Ramkumar Kannadasan (India) and Santtu Laine (Finland) have been developing whilst on residency at SSW throughout May and June.
During his residency Ramkumar Kannadasan has focussed on developing his knowledge of glazing in particular working with crystalline glazes. He has also been out and about exploring Scotland and has met with accomplished local artisans as well as visited many of the degree shows and university workshops across Scotland. Through these visits he has been researching and planning how he will develop his artist -ed multidisciplinary workshop in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu.
Santtu Laine has focused on exploring sustainable and alternative materials and processes to use in his art practice. In his time at SSW he has been experimenting with seaweed based bioplastics in particular using different casting and molding methods.
Ramkumar Kannadasan‘s residency has been made possible with kind support of the Charles Wallace India Trust.
Santtu Laine was awarded the 2023 Ecologies in the Making residency set up in collaboration with Cove Park, made possible by Uniarts Helsinki and Saastamoinen Foundation.
