Jade Crompton

2015 QEST Rumi Foundation Scholar - Ceramics & Digital Design

Jade is digital ceramicist based in Liverpool. Her practice involves research into the integration of digital technologies and ceramic mould making. Her work combines the traditional mould making and slip casting techniques with the new digital technologies including 3D digital modelling, 3D printing and laser-cutting to produce new and contemporary ceramic collections. Jade exhibits her work throughout the UK and Europe, and also conducts ceramics and digital workshops in schools, universities and maker spaces. She has worked with Assemble’s Granby Workshop, (Turner Prize winners, 2015) which allowed her to work on many creative projects including making and building a ceramic façade in Brooklyn New York for A/D/O’s new workspace for creatives. She now has her own business specialising in 3D digital modelling and also creates video tutorials for SOLIDWORKS, a leading 3D engineering software.

I always strive to create something new and original. The ever changing digital technologies inspire me to experiment and reinvent traditional ways of making or designing. I incorporate laser cutting and 3D printing with plaster to create unique moulds for slip casting.
