LIVING OBJECT is a joint project between Philip Hughes and Vanessa Hogge. This collaboration is a continuation of a project to re-imagine a home. By fashioning ceramic bowls, lights, coat hooks, they evoke nature with form and texture. Living Object combines Vanessa Hogge’s love of natural forms and flowers and Philip Hughes’s love of tectonic forms, inspired by rugged geology. Living Object offers works for sale and a platform for individual commissioned artworks, homeware and interior design.
