An exhibition of several vases of the same form made in various ceramic techniques. From electric kiln firing to living fire firing techniques.
The presented vase “Venus” refers to the prehistoric figurine of Venus, the goddess of fertility. It has an anatomical shape and is as delicate as a baby. Although cast from a plaster mold, there are no two identical copies. The aim is to show the diversity of the final effect depending on the choice of material and firing technique as well as the fragility of the reduction process. Realizing the difference between mass production and the artist’s craft production, deliberately omitting subcontractors.
The exhibition was included in the Łódź Design Festival 2023 program as part of the open programme call.
