Traditional patterns found on Ming vases from the archives of Museum Het Princessehof in Leeuwarden are combined with the age-old ‘underglaze’ technique (where paint is applied to the unfired clay and covered with a transparent glaze) and translated into a modern version: a perforated ceramic skin and embroidery of silicone rubber.

Developed during a period of work at the EKWC.
