The origins of colour were made by hand. Imperfections, serendipitous irregularities and fading were accepted aesthetics. The RGB Series is the result of a study on handmade colour and glazes. By exploring coloured glaze and translucency levels in the glazes, each fundamental colour RGB (Red, Green & Blue) is broken down and observed in its purest form, a phenomenon known as chromatography. The series also studies the basic influence of colours on other colours, termed simultaneous contrast which laid the building blocks of successful palettes making.
A pure efficient exploration of one hue - red and it's various tones or tints, specifically creating palettes of close-tonal harmonies. The visual effect is simple and sophisticated, streamlining forms and minimizing distractions.
Analogous; Reds on Purples
Colours that are neighbours on the colour wheel, such as red-pink or pink-purple. Analogous designs are harmonious by nature and can be used to evoke specific moods such as warmth, richness and nurture.
Complementary; Reds on Greens
Opposites attract, and it’s no different with colours directly opposite each other on the colour wheel. Used together, these pairings create visual energy and interest. Proportions create different effects, for instance - lighter tones of both opposites create calmer combinations.
