Inside the Studio : Melisa Dora
I was first introduced to Melisa Dora’s work whilst curating the first Makers House in 2017. I loved the delicacy of her colour pallet and the way that her work can sit with a wide variety of other product styles, often tying the whole show together. So now over to Melisa to show us a glimpse into her South London studio space.
Share a photo of you at work and tell us about your favourite working days.
Tell us a bit about your design process, how do you get started and generate new ideas?
Do you have a favourite material? (This question may be slightly superfluous when talking to a ceramicist but the image is such a beautiful example of Melisa’s relationship with her process that I couldn’t resist including it!)
Show us your workspace, are you clean or messy?
Introduce us to your team
Share a snapshot of your Makers House
And finally after all of that behind the scenes action here are Melisa’s products in all of their finished glory!
I hope you enjoyed seeing behind the scenes of Melisa’s practice, ceramics is such an intensely personal and solo pursuit that it is a privilege to get an insight into her practice. If you would like to find out more about Melisa’s work or even buy a piece then you can head to her website here or at one of our events later in the year.
We have lots more inside the studio interviews lined up so be sure to sign up to our newsletter so you will be the first to know when they go live.
