Luke Eastop is a ceramicist with a background in the creative arts. His work explores the basic qualities of material and form through pared-down geometric pieces made in a range of experiemental clay bodies. He started making ceramics in the studio of his late grandfather, the British ceramicist Geoffrey Eastop, and has since established his own practice in Margate, Kent. The starting point for Eastop's Quadric Vase Range, the series of vases available at Hostem Archive, was a large earthenware piece found at the back of his late grandfather’s woodshed. Each piece is made using an individual blend of clays and pigments.
