"Plates on the Walls"
Ceramic series - Elements on Fire

The abstract version of „Plates on the Walls“ are polished stoneware plates fired directly in a wood fire. Carbon is enclosed in the open-pored clay during the firing and is forming different light and dark areas, as well as different graphic textures, depending on the firing. The smoke patterns can only be controlled to a certain limit. The less you try to control them, the more interesting structures you get. The triology was part of the Künstlerhaus exhibition „Fremde“ 2018. Photo by Manu HarmsSchlaf
