Tavs Jørgensen

1969, Denmark

Jørgensen initially trained as a craft potter in his native Denmark. He went onto study 3D Ceramic Design at Cardiff Institute and following his graduation in 1995 he established his own ceramic design consultancy, working for a number of international tableware companies.

In 2005 he was appointed permanent research fellow at the Autonomatic Research Group, University College Falmouth, and since then his practice has been predominately focused on research - in particular investigating how new models of design practice can be developed on the basis of new technology tools. In this research he has explored also how new computer interfaces can facilitate more personal and expressive aesthetics in the artefacts created via digital fabrication tools.

He still maintains an active creative practice and his work is regularly featured in national and international exhibitions. Jørgensen is a frequent visiting tutor on the Ceramic and Glass course at the RCA and also a guest lecturer at numerous international universities and colleges.
