Description

“CU”, is a collection of pieces created in ceramic, copper, and silica with an innovative technique where, as a sort of alchemy, each piece is transformed into a new object in which colors and lines that ornate it emerge in an absolutely unique way through the firing process.

Basketry and ceramics are two of the world’s oldest handicrafts, there are vestiges of pieces of pottery of the Neolithic Age showing that the clay had been molded around a basket structure, showing the interrelation between those two crafts. In this new project, we wanted to return to those first experiments that mix different craft techniques. As a way of a contemporary analogy, we applied a mesh fabric that will leave its mark on the ceramic when fired, marking the vases with mechanical drawings from the industrial process of the fabric production. In this way, abstract patterns are generated that, when applied to the ceramic and after the firing process, leave a pattern between chaos and order. In addition, silica turns the ceramic impermeable while becoming deep green in contact with the copper.

About the designer

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
