Time Drawings

Niek and I started a design studio.We 're working on a new website for the both of us. But first I will introduce you his graduation work (just shown at Dutch design week http://www.ddw.nl/)
DRAWING THE PASSAGE OF TIME
Just like a normal clock, Niek de Snoo's project Time Drawings shows the time. But the big hand holds a piece of chalk that drops down as the year progresses. This will fill the space under the clock and literally make the passing of time visible.
After a year the drawing is full and after changing the chalk the process can start all over again. De Snoo: "I wanted to design something that would change in a positive way during use. I also had the need to gain a more expansive sense of time with this clock, to get a grip on time."

Dozen Dozen #2 -7 October

Dozen Dozen is a themed pop-up window gallery.
A group of visual artists, one window per exposition thought out by one of the participating artists. A dictatorial collaboration. The passing flaneur is forced to experience the display through an conceptual framework. There is more than simple seduction or flat aesthetics.
Dozen Dozen is located in the heart of Rotterdam. An ideal place for showing your finest work. An audience is guaranteed! Every first friday of the month there is an opening and new work by a selection of artists is displayed.

The selection of participants for Dozen Dozen #2. This time 15 artists will strut their stuff! It’s gonna be a huge mish-mash of crazy, original, beautiful stuff. Check it out!

The perfect vase?

It took a lot of time to create this vase. I dug the clay itself, therefore I went to a stone quarry. I made the prototype on the plasterwheel in the EKWC.
When I had the prototype I had to make a mold. That wasn't easy aswell because I made big molds and you have to prepare a lot of plaster in once to pour the liquid plaster into the 'aquariums', see here. The final step is to pour the liquid clay into the mold. And finish the vase.
video
I wanted to create a perfect vase. But the question is when will I be satisfied? Will it be more interesting if it turn into something new, unexpected. Can we create perfection?
In this teaser (flashvideo) you will see how this vase will perish. After all that work....., the vase turned into dust.

Cobalt-likes

-Graduation work 2011 Aniek Meeldijk-
 I am inspired and fascinated by vases. A vase can be a functional object as a sculpture, everyday objects can be interpreted in different ways.
The starting point of this ceramic work consists of the idea of ‘a perfect vase’. Because I was working with archetypal 'perfect' forms, the form will always be recognizable throughout the ceramic process. The rules are largely defined by me, but it remains unpredictable results by the properties of matter (clay) itself. Clay is something that no other material can. The material may surprise you, frustrate and dismay.
During my working process I searched constantly for a change or deformity, something I "had no control over." Factors such as the firing process, the glaze or the composition of the clay made each time for a new and surprising result.
The work is presented as a process in which experimentation and research is an important part. Boundaries of perfection and imperfection seem to fade and blend into each other. Click here in Dutch

Wooden wheel part II

1.2.
3.4.5.
6.
7.
I told you before that I made a wooden construction to turn my mold. My molds are to big and to heavy to empty by myself.I used some wooden boards to tighten/fix the molds between the squares in the wooden wheels. (1&2)  If you pour the liquid clay into the mold, the mould will be even heavier.(3&4) So with the 'wooden wheels' I just have to turn the mold between to tables(5), and empty the liquid clay back into a bucket. After a day or two you can take out the shape and finish the edges.(6&7)

Graduation Show Master of Fine Art 2011- Linda Quinlan

Anthem for the People’s Tomorrow July 9 – 24 2011
During the Christmas holidays I assisted Linda Quinlan with her project 'Pottery Percussion'.She already showed her work at the Bloomberg space in London.
Installation view at Bloomberg Space, 2011
Slip installation on glass and pillars with Pottery Percussion (2-channel video) projected in the backround.
Linda Quinlan (Ireland) Quinlan’s preoccupations pulsate with a rigour, pouring over subjects that land in the vicinity of art making, spaces close to its mode of entry and the timing of its arrival. Much of her time is spent considering the tone set at entering an artwork and thinking about the rhythm that keeps you buoyant until the time for meaning to step forward and something tangible to seep through. She is drawn to the rhythmic rise and fall that transits between surface and penetration, articulated form and inarticulated sensation, participation and separation. Rhythm as a motif, underlines much of Quinlan’s recent practice, standing for a way to move and a means to shape or build a work of art.
