“Vanitas” Vase II 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.
