About the artwork
Supergroup is a collaboration between artists John Booth and Ian McIntyre. They have created a new ceramic sculpture series, exclusively for House of Voltaire.
London–based artist, illustrator, ceramicist and textile designer John Booth is known for his graphic works featuring multi–layered collages of textures and colours. Booth draws inspiration from artists including Karel Appel and Betty Woodman as well as from retro children’s playgrounds and postmodern Italian designers. About the artists Born in Scotland in 1984 and raised in Cumbria, John Booth moved to London in 2004, where he graduated with a BA in fashion print design at Central Saint Martins in 2009. He has since taught as a lecturer both at Central Saint Martins and the University of Westminster. Booth has worked for several fashion brands including Zandra Rhodes, John Galliano, Ashish, Christopher Shannon and most recently, Globetrotter and FENDI.
Born in Leeds, England in 1984, Ian McIntyre studied MA Ceramics and Glass, RCA 2010. With a background in product design and applied art, Ian employs a mixture of industrial design and craft skills within his work to produce exhibitions, installations and designs for production. His output spans the fields of design, research and curating. Ian has collaborated with a wide range of design manufacturers and cultural institutions including Vitsoe, Jerwood Visual Arts and The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design.
