Description

MoClay, in Danish “Moler”, is a type of sediment that can be found around the North Sea and in the western part of the Limfjord in Denmark, more specifically in the areas of Fur and Mors.

This collection is named after this natural clay which, during my residency in the north of Denmark, I collected on the island of Fur. After gathering a consistent amount and different varieties of clay, I investigated their qualities, limits, and aesthetics throughout a series of firing experiments.

During this material research, more than four different types of earthenware were tested and one clay, in particular, revealed very interesting properties: deep red color, very light density, and uncontrollable form and surface. That is MoClay.

I decided to carry out experiments creating a series of vases on the potter’s wheel, combining an ancient traditional ceramic technique with experimental material research and process. At first, all of the objects hold a simple vase shape, then the firing brings up an unexpected and bubbly structure, letting the material play the main role and creating unique and natural artifacts.

About Davide Ronco Visit Showroom →

Davide Ronco is a Copenhagen based, multidisciplinary artist and designer. After a Bachelor in Industrial Design from the IUAV University in Venice, he developed a more emotional and sculptural approach obtaining a Master in Ceramic Design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He grounds his practice in material research and solid craftsmanship within the field of experimental design and contemporary art. By challenging the praxis from the conventional tools and methodology, he creates sculptural objects and archetypal forms, whilst focusing on the study of perception and the dichotomy between Natural and Artificial. The fascination for the Ad Extremum, as the human presence's narrowness, is at the core of his on-going research on the precarious existence of men: a study on transience, fragility, and decay.  Whether with sculpture, furniture, or site-specific installations, his diverse work revolves around found materials, unconventional methods, and up-cycling processes.
