Heal’s Discovers 2017

 

The Heal’s Buying team have scoured design and interiors shows around the UK and beyond to find the finest untapped talent in the UK. This year the common thread throughout the final selection is innovation in all its various shapes and forms. From digital design and 3D printing to the creative use of waste material to make striking surfaces, this year’s collection is as innovative and creative as ever.

Originally trained in graphic design, Matt Davis returned to his first love, ceramics, after 15 years away. After earning a first class degree in 3D Design and Craft, he began to explore the binary nature of ‘things’ by producing objects that appear to be virtual. Winning him a place on our Heal’s Discovers 2017 shortlist, multiple stages of software are used to create generative models that are 3D printed and then traditionally moulded and slip cast in liquid clay creating a truly 21st century ceramic collection that challenges the preconceptions of technology and traditional craft.
