Not only had I had seen this first image on Pinterest but it was my cover picture for my ceramics board during some time. But until I didn’t stumble about the entire series, I didn’t realize what a beautiful artisan project this was.
Talia Mukmel is a young Israeli designer. What you see here are two different projects but apparently with the same material. And it is not clay! The inspiration of the project was taken from studying the different tribes in Africa.
The “Terra Cotta” project (the first two images here), was born from the desire to explore culture and material, combining different local methods such as macramé, the use of flour as a binder and basic materials like sand and water.
The second series, called Terra Cotta#2 and in collaboration with Rona Zinger, depict the same mixture of basic materials baked in a home oven into metal constructions. Yes, stunning, right? You can see the entire process here.
Now, I’d like to know how to make one of these. Baking home is so much easier than at 1.230ºC in my workshop:-) Happy Thursday all from Warsaw!
