Description

It was August when I thought about this collection. It was summer and I was just focused on the wild beauty around me and on the poetry of Nina Cassian.

This thin object is made of paper porcelain just using hands and wood tools, millimeter after millimeter. It creates a dialogue with natural light to hide or reveal its small details.

About the designer


BIANCODICHINA

BIANCODICHINA is a contemporary ceramic studio founded by Alice Reina in 2015. Her work is inspired by the plastic properties of raw porcelain and is driven by the curiosity to manipulate this material to its limits, reaching unexpected results. She creates objects whose shapes, transparencies, or surface finishes make us doubt their consistency or, even, the materials they are made of. Her process of making is based on the use of thin sheets of porcelain or liquid porcelain, allowing her to create organic objects and textures which are always different. During the working process, Alice accepts - or rather, enhances - the anarchic nature of the material, obtaining unpredictable outcomes. Her objects are characterised by fine forms that grow on the silky surface of the bisque porcelain. The colour, when present, is obtained by natural pigments directly added to the raw porcelain, which is later mixed and shaped into the final pieces. This is a long process that allows the designer to make unique and precious objects.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
