When I retire the first thing I am going to buy is a pottery wheel and kiln.
“Baked” is the result of a commision for an exhibition presented during Dutch Design Week, on the theme “Getting Lost”.
“Baked” is inspired by a Sicilian folk event in Salemi, where a flour based material is used to create architectural decorations.
The project is a homage to bread and flour – primordial and essentials materials that accompany our daily life – and to the craftsmanship of baking and cooking.
If you want the ingredients to make your own at home it is 70% flour, 20% shredded dried agricultural waste (like grain stalks and leaves) and 10% natural limestone.
“’Autarky’ pays homage to the uncomplicated, the simple and the everyday. The collection suggests an alternative way of producing goods where inherited knowledge is used to find sustainable and uncomplicated solutions.”
