This project started when I decided to saw a teapot. I took the measurements from my mothers old teapot and when i was finished – i had a mold!
I sawed utensils such as cups, plates, sugar container and a milk jug. Than I casted porcelain into this fabric molds and after a while I’ve emptied it from the middle. In the process of burning in the kiln the fabric disappears and only the ceramic is left.
In this project, I made a connection between a soft material (fabric) and a hard material (ceramic), perpetuating and preserving the properties of the fabric. The ceramic takes on the texture of the fabric and the appearance of the seams, and looks like a kind of hardened textile.
The utensils are useful and contain an element of surprise. The work included trying out different patterns and different fabrics, the form of the utensil being determined by the pattern, or considerably influenced by the fabric, and changing from utensil to utensil.Materials and Technique: Porcelain; Sewing and Casting
