Jade Paton creates contemporary sculptures out of clay. Her main source of inspiration is the ancient vessel, as well as forms found in nature, architecture, design and contemporary art. She pieces various elements together to create unique and other-worldly designs. During the building process the shape mutates and evolves into something unexpected. The surfaces of the work are often raw and natural, as if they have emerged from the earth. The sculptures feel both ancient and futuristic, a strange juxtaposition of old and new.
Jade majored in sculpture at the Michaelis University of Fine art, in 2013.
