Giles Round

Ettore. Sorry!

This collaboration focuses on Round’s ongoing series of ceramics, each a misappropriation of Ettore Sottsass’ iconic Shiva vase. The phallic vases, remembered badly and rendered flaccid are both homage and apology to Sottsass and his iconic work. The latest in the series, created for JW Anderson Workshops, continues this production of tragic-comic pop objects into a suite of almost identical apologies.
Round’s work spanning ceramics, sculpture, furniture, print, painting and textiles have gained him international recognition and have been showcased worldwide; Serpentine Gallery (London, 2010), ICA (London, 2013), Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2015), David Dale Gallery (Glasgow, 2013), Galerija Jakopič and Moderna galerija, (Ljubljana, 2015), Nuvolari (Paris, 2015) and Mercer Union (Toronto, 2014-15) among others.

Ettore. Sorry! Ettore. Sorry!

In 2011, Round co-founded The Grantchester Pottery with fellow artist Phil Root. The artist run decorative arts workshop, is a modern reference to Roger Fry’s Omega Workshops, an early 1900s design enterprise of the decorative arts and fashion. Jonathan Anderson has also taken inspiration from this historic collective and applied the concept to the JW Anderson Workshops exhibiting and presenting influential artists, like now, Giles Round.
“Giles has created these 12 ceramic phallic vases and we are incredibly proud to present them in our creative space. I wanted his works to be presented as a exhibition, a reference to craft – something of which is fundamental to our JW Anderson Workshops.” – Jonathan Anderson
“The new ceramic sew-ons have been produced to accompany the exhibition of sorry vases. These stoneware phallic bones and bonelike phalluses are wearable apologies to be proud of.” – Giles Round Ceramic buttons available exclusively from 20th May at JW Anderson Workshops, 100 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JQ & www.j-w-anderson.com
