For Fabrikaat - Nijmegen
February 2019 - December 2019
TERRA_Tory is a project organized by Fabrikaat. We are one of the four designers involved.
We are researching on Nijmegen’s river clays to find their aesthetic qualities and technical behaviour, fired at different temperatures.
The project started by looking into ways to extract and process Nijmegen local earth, that will be soon covered by habitations. Inspired by the terra sigillata technique, practiced in ancient Rome, we use the finest particles of different clays in different ways. As a body or as a coating.
We organized our investigation using sample in a volume influenced by Roman wares. Through a system of classification, we can identify easily each samples and reproduce them afterward for the final collection.
Materials: Earth n°18/19 from Nijmegen
Size: larger diameter 5cm, H 13cm.
