movie day: “Moiré”

Turnaround → 4 weeks

Project Summary → Moiré is an enquiry into material and process.

My interest lies in where craft processes lie in contemporary design.
In this project I have subverted one of the oldest crafts in existence,
the coiling of clay, by automating the process using an extruding
machine. Once fired this uniform layered construct of ceramic produces
startling results, the ceramic actually behaves like a spring.

The dip dying process is again another process not usually associated
with ceramics, however I found that the porosity of the work lended
itself to absorbing colour. The piece is of no practical function but
demonstrates how, once put under different conditions, we can still
cause a material to behave completely unexpectedly.
