6:1 by Kirstie van Noort
Good research and experimentation is the base of Kirstie's designs. Working with different materials, understanding them and observing processes allows her to create truly unique pieces. Her project from 2012 called 6:1 explores the porcelain production processes and enviromental problems that are caused by it. Kirstie van Noort lives and works in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
"The production process of immaculate white porcelain is extremely damaging. One kilo is accompanied by six kilos of waste, the mining changes landscapes once and for all. Colour, texture and structure of the waste are the source of this ceramic series. The abundance and diversity of the residue create an extra dimension of beauty, always in a 6:1 proportion."
