This decorative set made by hand on the potter's wheel will land you with softness into the heart of the storm.
This set of blue and white porcelain photophores is inspired by the spiral patterns formed by the swirling winds of tropical cyclones. This design was made on the lathe in the contemporary ceramics Elephantom.Design workshop, located in Belgium.
For the Hurricane collection's photophores, white porcelain and blue-stained porcelain are assembled and then put on the potter's wheel where they intertwine to form this helix pattern. As the porcelains blend on the potter's wheel randomly, each candle holder is unique. Once their shape has been obtained, the thrown items dry slowly and are reshaped a second time in order to refine their contours. They are then fired twice in the workshop's kiln. A first time at 950°C before glazing and a second time at 1250°C, allowing the vitrification of the crafted ceramics. This high-temperature firing allows to obtain solid and waterproof ceramics. The complete creation process can take between 4 and 6 weeks.
Porcelain, a translucent material
Take a porcelain coffee cup, place it near a light source, and it will let a soft light shine through. That's what is so interesting about this material for ceramists. No other clay offers this translucency. It is the thinness of the throwing on the lathe that will allow the light to pass through and give attractive results.
A translucent ceramic, fine and delicate yet sturdy!
Crafted with great finesse, one could imagine that porcelain creations are fragile. However, unlike the impression that its whiteness and fineness could provide, even if very thin, porcelain is the hardest and most solid of all ceramics.
