    The Origin Collection is a collaboration between Jan Ernst and Colin Braye. The work translates the complexity and delicacy of biological and geological structures into domestic furniture items. Each piece was inspired by a different natural structure and deal with the nuances of turning abstract form into functional art items. Made entirely from clay, the range includes a two meter floor lamp – inspired by the delicate nature of sprouts – a side table, bench and desk, the latter which was influenced by geological formations. There is a monolithic quality to it due to its size and visual mass that anchors this collectible design body of work. The work is influenced by his fascination with natural structures such as corals, fungi, and geological formations. The designs have evolved into functional art and sculptural furniture expressed mainly through ceramics and gypsum.
