Description

Mould making is fundamental to many manufacturing processes, both in small batch productions as in mass manufacturing. In those processes the mould is indispensable for bringing the desired object into existence. When the mould has been used to cast however many objects it is put to one side and the focus shifts onto the object it has created. The project explores ways to answer the question; Is it possible to extend the moulds active life with subtle interventions and by doing so, maintaining its value after the casting process by making it as desirable as the realised object?

The pice in question is a mould for a shallow bowl. After desired number of bowls had been cast the mould was painted and glued together. The different colours indicate how the mould came a part to get the object out.

About Theodóra Alfreðsdóttir Visit Showroom →

Theodora is an Icelandic product designer based in London. She holds a bachelor’s degree in product design from the Iceland Academy of the Arts and a master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London in 2015. Theodora’s work revolves around the narrative an object can inhabit and exploring ways of objectifying that narrative. She's interested in the way an object can act as documentation of it’s manufacturing process; a record of what went on between the machine, tools, craftsman and material as well as it can communicate it’s origin and former life. That often leads to discovery of unexpected qualities as well as it gives the user a subtle opportunity to reconsider our material world and explore value in a different way.
