NIEUWE COLLECTIE | While exploring new ways to recycle porcelain waste I created a collection of vases and wall objects, inspired by stucco techniques.
Every type of production creates waste. With slipcasting I create “trimmings”; the residue from cutting the edges. With this project I am cleaning up my own mess, trying to become a zero-waste company.
In 2012 I graduated with a collection called Porcelain+. I created new colours and textures by mixing different metals and recycled glass through porcelain slip. The trimmings weren’t suitable for recycling into new slip because the oxides affected the behaviour of the clay. I decided to save the trimmings for later.
