High fired electric kiln

The pieces of Geoform series are ceramic paraphrases from our surrounding geological formations. Each objects evoke a characteristic features of a natural formation with their forms, surfaces and color variants.
The vessel captures the movement of quicksand. 3D printing technology has transformed these sand lines into a static, sculptural surface. The effect is further enhanced by the glaze.
Water-soluble salts, such as magnesium carbonate causes salinization in soil. When we mix this component into a ceramic glaze it’s create a cracked surface that also occurs in nature. Reflecting on the infinite extent of the Great Plain, where is usually appear this phenomenon, I displayed this cracked surface into an endless lens shape.
LAYER OF MINERALS
The geological rocks layers are piled one on top of the other, which in many cases revealed by abandoned mines. The vessel material came from a Hungarian quarry called 'Sámsonháza' where you can find five type of geological rocks at the same place. The vessel using the geological strata were made using Nerikomi technique, transforming the stratification into patterns.
