INVENTION COLLECTION is the practice name of Steph Woods, a ceramic artist and designer based in Brisbane, Queensland. Invention Collection exaggerates and celebrates the functionality of objects, rejecting modern and minimalist design ideals to create pieces that stick in the mind and tell a story. They become a parade of explosive colour and whimsical forms that long for personal connection from the user.
Steph mostly works with handbuilding techniques resulting in organic and tactile forms. Steph's playful designs have been showcased in spaces such as the Institute of Modern Art, Artisan and the Museum of Brisbane.
