‘Cutting Porcelain’ – Rolf Studio
As architects we create sections through our buildings to help elaborate on what happens within. We use the method of ‘cutting’ a building in 2 to show how the changes we have made on the outside affect the spaces inside. In fact, we use it for a lot of different reasons to convey many different things.
Over at Rolf Studio, they have taken the idea of the section and applied it to porcelain. The crockery has been encased in concrete and then sliced in half to present the object in a completely different and revealing way. Much like with a cross section through a building, these wonderful sections through concrete and porcelain create a wonderful new expression of the object. These are no longer working teapots and vases, but they are wonderful examples of an expression of process – through these objects its possible to see how these items work, and thats the beauty.
