A key part of CLIB KLAP’s ceramic production process is the development of glazes — and a single project may require up to 100 tiny samples in the quest for the right color and texture. To minimize waste, the duo has developed a narrow, cylindrical vase that requires very little glaze. Each vase is dipped in two glazes, offering a practical use for remaining glazes that would otherwise wind up as chemical waste. All the vases are one-offs and carry a unique number at the bottom.
Claire Maria Lehmann and Iben Harboe, both educated at Denmark’s Design School, have worked together since 2003, in each of their own separate workshops. Their process is extremely collaborative, favoring discussion in the service of development: they begin each project by assessing the essentials of the product to be created. During production, emphasis is placed on the materials and the handicraft of every piece; variations and imperfections are fundamental to the work of Clib Klap, as the designers believe that the tradition of ceramics is anchored in the raw, organic nature of material — they strive to underline the word “handmade.\"
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
