Wibble pot 003 by alex190381 Wibble pot 003 by alex190381
Experimental ceramics from my first degree.
Porcelain, rolled thinly cut into hoops and over fired to induce warping and fusing.

Wibble pot 003 by ~alex190381 is an experimental ceramic sculpture with an abstract design that seems to be made of sheer impossibility with the thin porcelain hoops. ( Featured by Myana )

That's a pretty decent immolation of Jennifer Mccurdy.

Hmm.... never seen her work before, beautiful. As far as I can tell she carves hers though, this was a material science thing, about the warping and memory of porcelain. Same results different methods as they say.

This is amazing! I am majoring in ceramic/metals, and I wanted to do something similar to this, pressing clay to its limits. I haven't worked in porcelain yet, mostly stoneware and white earthenware.

This reminds me of when entomologists pour plaster into ant mounds, let it dry, and then excavate it. It allows them to see all the intricate ant caverns and pathways...

This is awesome work you've done here.

i've worked with stoneware but never porcelain. i'm super curious about it. i was always told that things cut very thin will break during firing, does porcelain tolerate this better or did you do something different to work around it? i love warped biomorphic forms but i havent thought about overfiring yet (i only JUST got my own kiln) so i might have to experiment a bit. this is an inspiration. :)

How did you get that kind of structure? Did you fire it upside down at first or was there an armature inside to help hold it up that burned away? It's truly amazing.

That's weird. Due to the colour and the shape of the ribbons it reminds me of a tape worm. (please don't take that offensively!) It's like some organic spiraling otherworldly creature. Wonderful piece of work that must have taken a lot of patience and experimentation! Congrats on the DD!
