Description

“Vanitas” Vase I is created by employing a multi-step process called slip casting. The dry mold is filled with slip allowing it to solidify and form a layer, called the cast. The cast is covered with engobes and fired in an electric kiln. Afterwards, the object is glazed and fired again. The interior surface is finished in a glossy white glaze.

Traditional techniques and a contemporary approach are combined with a post-internet aesthetic that has an organic feel. The colour palette is influenced by digitally rendered images and computer visualisations. The object explores the impermanence of nature in the traditional still life genre. It takes references from natural habitats to create unique, yet recognisable poetics.

About the designer


Natura Morta

My  work explores the impermanence of nature in the traditional still life genre. It\'s taking references from natural world to create unique recognisable poetics. Nature Morte literally dead nature is a silent moment of transition. In a sense it seems like a warning that the natural habitat is not a given fact and that our environment is a fragile organism. Through a search for perfect forms I am addressing themes such as disintegration, failure, destruction and... rebirth. All as a reminder of human\'s irrational relation to the environment and a call for a more holistic coexistence with nature and other beings.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
