With a self-imposed limit of maximum 10 kg of clay per object, I want to explore shape, volume and size and are searching for how much I have to manipulate clay to change the visual perception of the object – from one form to another.
The object are completely free of glaze and are instead made of different types of clay, with a desire to use the natural colors and different characteristics of the clay itself, highlighting the texture and the surface on the inside and outside where smooth meets the coarse.
