The Brighter Things collection was developed from Fleming’s obsession with legs. Beginning as a collection of doodles of creatures, the vessels evolved into objects that are big enough to become their own character representing a small corner of Fleming’s evolving universe There organic forms are hand-built with layers of sculpting plaster and custom mixed with raw pigments. Using the tactile and uncontrollable characteristics of plaster as a guiding force, the designer embraced the way the material holds a fingerprint. The result is an unstandardised and unapologetically hand-made, rough-hewn surface. Vases and pots traditionally rely on a secondary piece of furniture for support. Instead, Brighter Things vase & pot elevates blooms as a singular object, through its anthropomorphic stance that generates a theatrical presence.
Born 1993 in Australia, Jordan Fleming lives and works in Melbourne Designer and artist Jordan Fleming works with metal, plaster, pigment and timber to create sculptural and experimental furniture and lighting pieces characterised by humour and vivacious, wonky asymmetry. Fleming’s work expresses a personal exploration with materials through her use of sculpting plaster and pigments to create pieces that possess an emotional impact; conjuring feelings as if they’re living in the space, rather than solely serving a programmatic function. Having a background in cabinet making and interior design, Fleming established her own furniture design practice in 2018. Fleming’s works have been exhibited in Melbourne Design Week (2020, 2021, 2022), At The Above Gallery (2021) and Australian Design Centre Workshopped19 (2018). Additionally, her work has been profiled in design magazine Artichoke, architecture and design blog Yellowtrace, and Frankie magazine as the winner of their 2018 Good Stuff design awards.
