Mike Eden

Mike Eden made his name with Eden Pottery which he co-founded with his wife Vicky. A few years ago he studied at the Royal College of Art and his ceramics evolved in a new direction, following his new aim of combining traditional ceramic hand craft skills with digital technology. His current work uses QR (Quick Response) codes to trigger a virtual experience of the object, and he is about to produce collaborative work with a musician. Expect a friendly, down to earth presentation which explores some of the potential of digital technology for ceramics: “The theme of my current work is around the ‘liberation’ of the object through simultaneous actual and virtual experiences.”
