Description

The “MUDERNISM” collection celebrates prehistoric design icons, glazed with materials extracted from modern wastewater treatment. All pieces are handmade at the designer’s studio in Amsterdam.

All living species drink water, but we as humans elevated ourselves above plants and animals by designing objects in which we give shape to the water before we drink it.

Archaeologists discovered ceramic designs from around 6368 Before Present buried in the Dutch earth. Studio Billie van Katwijk pays homage to this pioneering Dutch design with a reimagining of a classic: the funnel beaker. We glaze the ancient mudshape with the residue of latest scientific explorations.

MUDERNISM is a glaze. The thin layer that separates us from our earliest ancestors.
MUDERNISM consists of the most modern mud that we can distill from water: Kaumera.
MUDERNISM gives you a hyper-prehistoric drinking experience.

We are part of the cycle of water.
We are temporary containers.
We’ve always been and always will be.

MUDERNISM is an ongoing project. Studio Billie van Katwijk is currently researching different by products of the wastewater purification process. Billie also works on site specific projects connecting with local clay, heritage and wastewater.

The designer

Profile Photo
Billie van Katwijk
Conceptual product designer Billie van Katwijk is fascinated by nature: that endlessly shapeshifting, growing, blooming, dying, sprouting, phenomenon. From these natural cycles all sorts of materials emerge.  Some are treasured (gold, oil, diamonds) while other materials remain unseen or unappreciated. Billie van Katwijk unravels the beauty of these materials. Slaughterhouse-waste becomes a luxury-leather, a residue from the sewer shows its hidden colors when turned into a glaze. Cremation ashes are transformed in a delicate porcelain. Van Katwijk believes in showing contradictions and taboos, but she doesn’t judge. Her projects seduce people to think and to engage in a dialogue. “My concepts are completed by the user, with his or her own thoughts.”
