Paste by Christopher Riggio


After in collaboration with Squire & Partners, presents Paste, a unique site specific ceramic installation by recent RCA graduate Christopher Riggio. Responding directly to The Department Store’s history and recent reimagining, Paste explores craftsmanship,
materials and evolutionary states with a focus on ornamentation with utility.

Following his MA final, Christopher was selected for Wallpaper’s Graduate Directory of 2018 and began working as an assistant to ceramicist Martin Smith. Riggio has also worked alongside numerous ceramists and designers, including Hitomi Hosono and Robin
Levien. Inspired by Lucio Fontana and the handicraft of Cartier, Riggio’s practice addresses a perpetual desire to reconnect with a past metropolis through new material sophistication.
