Unearthed interiors · 2016

The Unearthed Interiors collection has a focus on interior products and accessories. Each piece has shards of coloured parian, a type of porcelain that is likened to marble once polished, incorporated into the clay. Due to the casting process, the coloured shards are dispersed throughout the body of the piece in no controllable manner. Fired in a kiln, the pieces are sanded down to unearth the random pattern, a result of the process making no two surfaces the same. One more firing to a higher temperature makes the parian self-glaze, sealing the surface of the clay and bringing out the true colour, with a final polish to make the objects tactile and smooth to the touch.
