Ceramicist taking part called Roy Gonzalez Brown; Corrugated ceramic tableware, formed from single-use cardboard moulds. The moulds are filled with stoneware clay, and then burned away in the kiln – creating dense, overlapping textures on the ceramics inside. The vessels bear the crumpled gesture of the cardboard, as if they are made of petrified paper.
This is: The Lost Cardboard Process. A reaction to our wasteful culture of disposable cardboard products. Cardboard Ceramics turns these generic pieces of neglected cardboard into distinctive pieces of ceramic tableware. They are tactile, handmade, and rich with individual character – the antithesis of the mundane, expendable paper from which they are made.
