Reversed Volumes (2010)
impregnated pigmented ceramic powder, casting
“Reversed Volumes” are bowls that are shaped by capturing the imprint of a fruit/vegetable.
The space between a vessel and a fruit/vegetable is filled with ceramics. After the original organic material is taken away, the bowl preserves the actual imprint. The use of ceramic powder, which becomes really hard without being fired, gives the possibility for each bowl to be as unique as the actual used fruit /vegetable. Therefore, each cast bowl is an unique piece. The surface of each fruit/vegetable is represented in detail and lets the user see it from a different perspective.
The “Reversed Volumes” collection was developed for FoodMarketo, a pop-up shop organised by DesignMarketo, Apartamento Magazine and Marion Friedmann during Milan Design Week 2010.
