James Lemon (b.1993) is a New Zealand born ceramicist working and living in Northcote, Melbourne. He explores and experiments with clay as a generative activity to develop works that are sculptural and functional.
His signature handmade functional wares are highly tactile, playful and dynamic objects. While they are produced via traditional production methods of throwing, they are also warped to express movement and gesture. Lemon’s practice is also collaborative.
As of May 2019, Lemon has his work available at his first Flagship Ceramic Studio/Shop. The physical location of the space is 41 Arthurton Rd, Northcote, VIC. Conveniently situation opposite Northcote Train Station and beside The Herbert Cafe.
In addition to his online shop, his work has been exhibited and stocked in various local contexts including A.G.M expo and Welcome to Wasteland, NGV Design Store, Heidi Museum Design Store, Modern Times and Pepite. Lemon has also been featured in The Design Files, Real Living Magazine and Broadsheet.
