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

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
