Description

Since the Industrial Revolution, ignorance and negligence have generated overloaded landfills in our throw-away culture. Metals are crucial to our world, and, unfortunately, a non-renewable resource. “Ignorance is Bliss” is an ongoing project about reincorporating the value of metal waste by applying it as a pigment from industries such as drinking water supply and soil remediation companies into new valuable products and methods. The colors are retrieved purely by using pigments from waste. In this project, surprisingly, the more contaminated the raw material, the more vibrant the designed objects are.

Each piece is hand-crafted and fired in a unique reduction gas oven, comes with its own charming irregularities. All ceramic pieces are food safe.
