Vilas Ed SilvertonPosted: May 25, 2016
I really enjoy Vilas’s ceramic sculptures. They are fun, bold and technically skillful. I really like the addition of patterning used in his work. The sculptures remain unfunctional meaning they only really exist inside a gallery but I think if this style could be translate into a functional object it would make for a powerful, contemporary piece in a home environment.
However, his starting drawings leave me less enthusiastic…
Whilst created in a moment of spontaneity, they simply consist of dull shapes created using an Ipad app. The improvement during the transition between 2D and 3D astounds me.
