BTM Ceramics is a collection of ceramic pieces that are distorted right after demoulding, by placing the malleable pieces on a body vibration plate to gently vibrate and shake them into organic shapes. The vibration plate is hijacked from its traditional purpose in the fitness industry and becomes a tool to investigate and create new ideas, processes, expressions and craft.
I create iterations on classic object types by examining their modes of manufacture, assembly or use.
By introducing plug-ins which alter the usual outcome, I try to cultivate a critical approach towards our relationship with what surrounds us, blurring the line between everyday furniture and conceptual pieces.
Process Plug-Ins are two projects that both draw from experimental material explorations, iterations of production processes and employment of artifacts as tools to inform their design process. They utilize unique processes to develop the expressive potential in industrial materials and open up fields of exploration and further development without declaring specific ends.
