Object, 2004, glazed porcelain, 15 x 11 x 1.5cm (the size of a postcard).
A topographical postcard.
"During a residence at the European Ceramic Work Centre in Den Bosch in The Netherlands, I worked with porcelain for the first time and developed a series of cast shapes based on crockery and spoons, and on the space between the table and the objects. The works were influenced by the casting process and by the plaster moulds made for each piece, as a form that describes the space around the object. I worked with the typology of domestic objects like spoons and cups, trying to materialise the way we handle them and the physical space they occupy." MvK
