Porcelain, stain, glaze

This project aims to create playful tableware. The inspiration comes from the beautiful colour of sweet. I focused on the colour and shape of sweets. Sweets have a long history and bring us happiness and satisfaction. Apart from the sweet taste of candies. The colour of sweets also is a factor that attracts people to eat them.

I got inspiration form the use of colour and used them in ceramics making. I looked into the manufacture of sweets and tried to recreate the process using clay or slip. I found that there is a lot of similarity between sweets producing and ceramics making. I used the hand-making technique called Nerikomi to recreate sweets patterns and apply them to bowls.
