folds and faults I

porcelain glazed
Opaque glass (cone 15)


The project `folds and faults` is a series that evaluates the meaning of faults, flaws, and inaccuracies in objects. Against the backdrop of a flawless hegemony of industrially produced items, each object is exploring different faults and their influence on its aesthetic value.


Each object is made out of single puddles of porcelain. The silhouette and surface are therefore mainly formed by the material itself.
To create a three dimensional tension within the material the only active intervention were two triangular cuts. The cuts were folded back together by hand to provoke a self forming processes within the object.
The results are unique specimens formed by the material itself, the forces of the kiln and two intentional cuts.

Another factor which was added in a third kiln fire are opaque glass fragments. 
Sample with minor defect.
