Building up the expo for our minor at Akv St.Joost Den Bosch.
The result? Its indistinguishable from the real wood, the details are stunning, the strength of the porcelain when it is not yet baked however is non existent.
The use of porcelain is not for the fainthearted…
A little update to the design. The porcelain plate is going to be developed as one piece instead of three.
I am currently following a ceramics, plastic and bronze minor at the Den Bosch location of my academy. What I plan to do is develop a small coffee table 150 cm long 40 cm wide and around 28 cm high. The support is build up from a concrete block (hollow from the inside), a cherry wood beam with two legs and a metal plate. On this metal plate will rest the the table plate which will be made entirely from Bone China porcelain. The two bottom images are a small scale test in porcelain. The challenge is to make the plate from either one plank of wood or to cut them up in three as I have done in my design, (considering the size of the kilns at the art academy St.Joost). Luckily Den Bosch as a city is home to most of the largest kilns for ceramics and porcelain in the Netherlands!!
The results of my cube experiments, loved doing the stuff I did but frankly I have no idea what lessons to take from it…
The form of the cube is one of my researches at the moment. I am using an intuitive approach which is quite frankly a lot of fun. This is not design nor art it is simply research into materials and shapes.
This guy illustrates quite well the problem of copyright laws.
OSCAR NIEMEYER HAS BEEN, AND WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF MY GREATEST INSPIRATORS.
I DO NOT BELIEVE IN A AFTERLIFE AND NEITHER DID HE, YET I HOPE HE PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY.
The weather was like home… sadly home followed as well. I present to you our lovely crown princess waving. And like all other royalty’s the crown prince, he was in a hurry. And then I landed in the Greek Consulate where some grand art exhibition was being opened. Luckily there are places like Araf on the 9th floor of an apartment building to lose your self in the City that never sleeps.
