These are made by using cotton fabric as the temporary structure to hold the porcelain and at the end of the process the fabric is burnt away remaining only the delicate porcelain. Not using the typical mould creates the great opportunity to make individual pieces in a very efficient way, but still keeping their uniqueness. It’s also very special the dynamic brought by the texture and appearance of the fabric that in turn shapes the porcelain.

The process of making these objects starts with soaking the piece of fabric in porcelain, and then shape it. After dried it’s cooked just like any other porcelain object. In the process the fabric burns away remaining only the delicate porcelain.
