INTARSIA // POP UP + EXHIBITION 2021
in cooperation with ______Metzgerei // pictures taken by Steffen Stender
The intarsia technique is traditionally used in woodworks, where different woods are put together to create flat inlay ornaments. In the intarsia project, I translated this technique into porcelain vessels: The motifs are created by layering porcelain strangs, cutting them into slabs and then putting these into gypsum molds. By pouring the porcelain over the inlays, the motifs are anchored in the vessels walls. Because of the soft material and the slight deformation, each vessel gets its own character, although the motifs share the same origin.
