About the Artist
James Rigler studied 3D Craft at the University of Brighton before graduating from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Ceramics and Glass in 2007. His bold and vibrant ceramic sculptures are inspired by the language of architectural ornament, including its most monumental and grandiose schemes. He describes his most recent work as being ‘led by thoughts of ruined and abandoned ancient places, romantic landscapes and stage sets’. His objects have emphatic, epic presence, cut adrift from their original contexts to take on new meanings.
House of Voltaire commissions and sells unique artworks, limited edition prints and specially–commissioned homewares, objects, clothing and accessories by world–renowned contemporary artists and designers. Everything on sale is one of a kind or limited edition, and exclusive to House of Voltaire.
