This object is not a modern object. The description says: “Fired Clay. Gumelnita, Cascioarele, 4600-3900 BC. National History Museum of Romania, Bucharest: 12156.” That is 6000 years!
Silke Decker, ceramic: “In 2003 I started experimenting with surfaces in porcelain. Dipping all kinds of materials in fluid porcelain and trying to create interesting but stable structures. (…) To produce the structure threads are diped in fluid porcelain and arranged one by one on a plaster model. After a period of drying the finished network is easily separated from the plaster. In the fire by 1240 degree, the object burns supported in a quartssand bed. Very early in the process of burning the thraeds burn completely and leave little hollow spaces in the remaining porcelain network. The object is stable, despite of its lightness.”

Natasha Fadeeva, handstuffed animals. Very well crafted and very sweet, but I am in the mood for sweet today 😉
