Kitin is a collection of effect glaze and luster experiments that reflect

the beetles' iridescent chitin shells. The one-of-a-kind pieces interplay between materials, kilns, techniques and decorations. They can be used as Christmas tree ornaments, as the idea was inspired  by the European tree decoration habit, "hang on everything that is shiny".
