Porcelain EXPERIMENTATION

Material and form experimentation plays a big role in my approach to design. Each project I set out to explore pushes materials to their limits, creating unexpected and diverse outcomes. The aim of this material experimentation was to investigate the potentials and limits of porcelain, which is often perceived as a fragile and unforgiving material to work with.

The objects created from this exploration go through stages of manipulation and transformation to create forms which reflect upon my research into natural structures found throughout nature. Particularly the Urodid Moth cocoon, which creates a 3D wire like cocoon around itself.

This research preceded the Porcelain speakers. Having the opportunity to experiment with porcelain allowed me to gain insight into what the material could actually do and what could be achieved through material transformation.
