KUB.KUB is the ceramic work Anders Duckworth a multidisciplinary artist based in Camden Town, London. The name KUB.KUB is a nod to my Swedish heritage - kub is Swedish for cube - and some of my first pieces were the cube vases that you see here  KUB.KUB began with KUB 1, a set of three slab-built cuboids with rectangular incisions made in the surface.  This encapsulates the essence of much of the work that I create. The cube represents three-dimensional space and all of my work (choreography, performance, film, and ceramics) explores space in one way or another.

My training as a dancer informs my practice, and leads me to view my ceramic work as movement frozen in time; a physical trace of hands pushing, pulling, and pressing clay. I have always been fascinated by the Japanese notion of wabi-sabi, a practice which sees beauty in the imperfect, these imperfections are what can bring us closer to the maker and the moment of making. I am also influenced by Scandinavian design, with its simplicity and play with materials and texture.

One way I like to work is to use collage to draft the surface design, sometimes it takes me pages of drafts or making films of moving forms and shapes to find the one that works. I see these very much as choreographic scores - maps for movement.
