FIREWORKS CLAY STUDIOS Lisa Krigel Pushing the boundaries between form and function has always been at the heart 
of my practice, but my interest in food and architecture, particularly modern and brutalist construction and the utopian Ideology that underpinned many of these architectural forms, fuel my current ceramic work. In these stacked, sculptural pieces that form ‘Kitchen Storeys’, function is making its way to the fore. 
Here, I am making direct reference between the functions of the brutal concrete buildings and each component of my stacks. As each tower is dismantled the presentation becomes dependent on the particular food that it houses. The pieces become part of the rituals that surround intimate meals, dinner parties and celebratory events, where we create opportunities for storytelling, discussion and debate that fill the spaces we live and work in, and so, for a moment, the utopian vision that the Brutalist architects and designers believed in, might be glimpsed.
