Porcelain objects shaped by fire and water. Studio Floris Wubben designed an installation inspired by the solar system with which unique textures can be created in sequence. Within this installation, a gas burner’s flame etches a texture onto an unbaked porcelain object. The porcelain reacts to the high temperature, causing various layers to burst from the object.
By combining different glaze techniques with this etching technique, contrast arises in colour and texture. The distance between the porcelain and the flame, as well as the speed at which the porcelain object revolves in the installation, affects its final texture.
The elegant shape of the bowl together with it’s raw texture, make an interesting and unique object.
Erosion Set consists of bowls, pots and cups, and is a collaboration with Cor Unum ceramics studio.
