Sand Shaped Porcelain

An ongoing experiment into producing objects carved from various foams. In this instance a series of candlesticks were made.

Taking influence from classic art deco designs, profiles were cut and attached to blocks of foam. When shaped, the profiles are extruded producing bellowing, free-flowing tails creating layers of movement, texture and time.

The resultant forms are slip cast in porcelain; the smooth, polished faces of the original profiles are a stark contrast to the intricately textured, rock-like sides.

I first explored this technique in my Phenol Formaldehyde-Latex Chair.
