Terraformation

Made possible with the support of CBK Rotterdam, O&O, 2016-2022.
Clay, slag. 12 ceramic spheres 35 cm in diameter. Unique piece.

Terraformation is a research project on the use of polluted soils and slag as ceramic glaze. It builds upon my previous work and research on soil Terra Moderna introducing a new medium and technique. Since soil and slag are not commonly used for glazing, I have been preparing and testing the material in order to create the standards: a set of tests to domesticate the material and use it as glaze. The final research crystallized in a series of 12 large spheres, 35 cm in diameter, made on a press mould and glazed using the different soil samples.

Special thanks to Anne Wenzel Studio, Katrin de Koning, EKWC Oisterwijk.
