Cracks is a series of ‘broken’ crockery. It is based upon the natural behaviour of shrinking of porcelain during the firingprocess. It shows an increasing pattern of cracks along the series. In collaboration with Bauke Knottnerus.
The starting point of this crockery is to build up the whole series starting with a huge plate and a big bowl. After firing the plate and the bowl will shrink about 15%. The shrinking basicly creates the series: from big bowl to cup and from plate to saucer. In the end of the series cup and saucer meet again.
The layers of cracks are applied to show the decay of products. The future of a cup will eventually end up in cullet.
