Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
The pieces of Geoform series are ceramic paraphrases from our surrounding geological formations. Each objects evoke a characteristic features of a natural formation with their forms, surfaces and color variants. The materials developed from the original soils and the shapes of the objects came from the structure of the nature analogies. These narrative objects are reflecting to a personal experiences with landscapes and express local values.
The current series processes three geological phenomena: the fragmentation of soil salinity, the stratification of geological rocks and the structure of quicksand. LAYER OF MINERALS The geological rocks layers are piled one on top of the other, which in many cases revealed by abandoned mines. The vessel material came from a Hungarian quarry called 'Sámsonháza' where you can find five type of geological rocks at the same place. The vessel using the geological strata were made using Nerikomi technique, transforming the stratification into patterns. DRY SOIL Water-soluble salts, such as magnesium carbonate causes salinization in soil. When we mix this component into a ceramic glaze it’s create a cracked surface that also occurs in nature. Reflecting on the infinite extent of the Great Hungarian Plain, where is usually appear this phenomenon, I displayed this cracked surface into an endless lens shape. SAND DUNES The vessel captures the movement of quicksand. 3D printing technology has transformed these sand lines into a static, sculptural surface. The effect is further enhanced by the glaze.

I appreciate these objects even more when paired with the landscape, when they are without the contextualising images they feel less impactful. It would make a really interesting installation comprising a series of objects referring to landscapes, places and cultures. Exciting work.
