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.
