Cornwall Color Studies

Research, 2014

In 2010, I travelled to Cornwall to research into the extensive influence of the mining industry onto the landscape. I visited twelve different mines and collected samples of residue from the porcelain, copper and tin industries. The samples formed the base material for a ceramic paint that can be used to color porcelain.
Cornwall Color Studies shows newly developed colors derived from residues collected during another, recent trip to Cornwall. The base materials are applied in their original state, representing the different natural resources and mines. Based on how the new colors are mixed, ground or applied, there will be a wide range of colors available in the near future.

This project was made possible by the Creative Industries Fund NL.
