This project was born from Alissa Volchkova’s fascination with the liquid state and aspect of the clay material. She is exploring the physicality of the porcelain slip, by pushing the limits of this fragile and precious matter. The aim here is to challenge our vision of the traditional methods of production and expectations about porcelain. Using irregular lines, saturated colours, and a matt finishing – challenges our expectations about this surprising matter.
Two processes of production are combined: first, a vessel – a bowl or a plate – is slip cast, then the perfect circular shape is disrupted by randomly pouring on it the dyed slip until it freezes and creates irregular edges. The final result is uncontrollable, determined by the unpredictable and spontaneous slip movement and kiln firing. These bowls can be stacked into endless variations to create unique, graphical compositions.
