human hair & porcelain

When cut hair is combined with porcelain something new emerges. Hair turns into structure. Orderly placed or organically felted, growing out of a wall or resting on a table, these structures tell a story of what was.

The hair, collected in a hair salon, is dipped in porcelain and burns out in the production process, leaving its image in porcelain. Thin areas create deformations and transparencies and glazes, strategically placed, heighten the features of the object.

Chance, as part of the process of creation, places the focus entirely on the material's capabilities and the traces of its manufacture, which reveal the fragility of the objects.
The transience of such a moment is perceptible in every object. For example, through small splinters that dissolve.
