BRUTALISM PORCELAIN

I make heavy, long-lasting forms for everyday human use from a mineral compound similar to cement, namely, porcelain: jugs, bowls, cups and bottles. The vessel shapes are derived from Werner Düttmann’s architectural plans.

March 6, 2021, marked the centenary of the Berlin architect and urban planner Werner Düttmann (1921-1983). With his buildings, which are emblematic of the post-war period, Düttmann played a key role in shaping and influencing Berlin and its residents.

The dishes of the BRUTALISM PORCELAIN are an attempt to create a connection between the body and the qualities of brutalist architecture. The vessels are numbered chronologically and are part of my art project ONE MILLION, an undertaking meant to last throughout my life.
