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


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.
