Welcome to Spotted, our latest top-favorites list from the world of contemporary ceramic art and contemporary ceramics. This we launch our Spotted with Erika Verzutti’s seemingly primordial reliefs and sculptures.
Brazilian sculptor Erika Verzutti explores the ephemeral act of creation itself and how it begins to actualize in the physical world in her seemingly primordial reliefs and sculptures, according to her artist bio. Incorporating these fleeting gestures into their final form, her works––evoking both the familiar forms they represent, as well as the abstract results of her material exploration––maintains grounding through her studio practice, which investigates “continuously evolving relationship between ideation and process.”
Olivier van Herpt
Get a load of these gorgeous––like stratified atmosphere––blue and white 3D-printed porcelain vases from young Dutch designer Olivier van Herpt. Presented by Galerie VIVID, these Delftware-inspired vases are formed with extremely thin walls. According to DesignBoom, the vases are formed by layering multiple fine layers of clay using a 3D printer the designer developed himself.
The blue pattern signifies the interaction between the human and the machine, as the cobalt pigment is applied by hand on the clay body before inserted into the extruder, and then reconstructed by the 3D printer.
The vases were presented at this years Design Miami / Basel (June 11 – 17, 2018).
Come back throughout the week to see more of our finds from the world of contemporary ceramic art and contemporary ceramics to our top-favorites Spotted list.
