LOREKFORM is a new studio led by Erin Lorek that explores the expressive nature of light through materiality and form. Working with a small team of artists and makers from across the country, the Brooklyn-based studio creates simple objects from honest materials that are uniquely beautiful at all times of day.
From the beginning, LOREKFORM has focused on sustainability and life cycles. The studio’s entire process uses only five materials, all of which are re-used, recyclable or both. The textures used in the clay impressions come from existing materials, already a part of our environment. The tools and molds created by the studio can be used time and time again. Once a tool needs to be retired, it is sent to the iron furnace and re-cast into something new. Erin hopes to create a library of these tools to allow for each one’s unique story to be shared and brought to life in different installations all around the world.
