Description

“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.

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

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.
