- Product Details
Made using the smallest number of moves possible, Joe makes these works by slicing each one from a full loaf. It is inspired by sledging, an extrusion process originally used to achieve long-lengths of architectural detailing, such as cornicing. Starting with a full bag of clay, Joe drags his fingers down the material to produce five long valleys. This length is then sliced into several toast racks and each one is dipped in rubber to seal it. Each batch contains 10 racks, complete with two crusts. Like any loaf, you are welcome to take your pick. This rack lends itself to large pieces of crusty bread.
Joe is a Manchester-based 'Butcher, Baker, Designer, Maker', with an interest in exploring old and new materials and processes. Inspired by quotidian tasks, he makes objects with a precise function, resulting in purposeful and considered designs. Joe has experience of working in the food industry, which has informed his ability to create playful useable homewares. Sometimes he works alone, although he is also known as an active collaborator. In 2012 Joe won the Best New Designer at New Designers.
