Study of Monsters

Installation view

The project Study of Monsters derives from everyday ceramic products, and examines the relationship with craft practice and production.
Modern Ceramic production is pure, precise and uniform, and the skilled craftsperson is taught to eliminate mistakes and have complete control over the process. When an error in fabrication occurs, contradictions between the processed object and the rawness of the material itself appear in the final object’.
In Study of Monsters, the production either begins where the material or prototype has failed, or the production is stopped in various unfinished phases to let the inherent properties of the material take over.
The objects are results of experiments, but also suggest the time and labour behind a production line.
