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 by reimagining a classic: the funnel beaker. We glaze the ancient mudshape with the residue of the latest scientific explorations.

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

About the designer


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.”
