Artists of the Week: Julia Sherman & Thomas Sprott

PEACHES is a multidisciplinary art and design studio headed by Julia Sherman and Thomas Sprott. PEACHES designs and creates highly thoughtful yet minimal objects that explore identity, self-expression, functionality, and color. PEACHES recontextualizes their work through product photography, which allows the duo to critique domestic and consumer culture through a feminist and Queer lens.

PEACHES prides themselves on the physicality and the labor they invest into their work. The forms of PEACHES derive from the act of physical making where objects evolve out of the hand. Forms are then researched, tested, and altered in an endless cycle that strives for perfection.

Fruits by PEACHES is a slip casted pendant light series comprised of a high- red and stained porcelain clay body. The forms in Fruits by PEACHES are left intentionally raw vitri ed clay in some areas and are glazed in other areas. The matte surfaces from the raw clay contrast with the glossy surfaces from the glaze and further emphasize the exploration of light. The series is made up of of a variety of forms casted in di erent colors. These forms are intended to be interchanged and fastened together to create unique light xtures of varying size, luminosity, and atmospheric effect.
