The Research Collection

Research, 2015

This collection is emerged from my research in Cornwall back in 2011. I completed a field trip to learn more about the production of china clay and stumbled upon dozens of other mines such as copper and tin. All of them left a remarkable footprint in the landscape by piles of colored material. After collecting the materials I started to make hundreds of tests and color samples. A process in where I started to get to know all the qualities and characteristics of each color.
By treating materials as paint and using them to color porcelain, I developed a color chart with about 220 different colors. Different materials originating from the china, tin, copper, silver and lead industry in Cornwall were used to form the basis for this chart.¬†After finishing all the research in 2015 I developed this collection in where I used the developed colors as a ‘Ceramic Paint’.
