PORZELLAN, DEINE FARBEN

Product Design & Applied Art (Porcelain, Ceramics, Glass)

“Porcelain, your colours” examines the meaning colour can have for this material today. What potential of expression lies in the classical colouring methods and how can it be extended? In an open experimental structure, my search moves between method and sensuality, abstraction and “thingness”. The experiments took place in the oldest porcelain factory at Meissen, where colours are created in the company’s own laboratory. In cooperation with the lab and painters, I was searching for new and lively connections with the material; neon colour as well as light and space are included.

TYPOTROP

Graphic Design

The project “Typotrop” focuses on the limits of our perception and the legibility of type. The underlying idea goes back to the optical illusion of the thaumatrope. The result is “Thauma”, a font split into two layers and printed on the front and back of plates. The letters are only perceptible through the rotation of the panels. I demonstrate an experimental and unconventional way of type design based on three “Typotrops”and a filmic type specimen.

The paste extruders Albert and Alberta

Industrial Design

Humans have created tools to achieve their needs, to materialize their imaginations. Creating diversity. Creating independence. Tools to challenge exceptional circumstances - breaking new ground. Introducing Albert: Albert is an affordable paste extruder for everyone. Just connect the Albert extruder unit with your existing 3D printer and gain access to printing non -standard materials with your standard printer. Albert is compatible with almost every 3D printer available on the market. The extruder is delivered in components for easy and smart assembly. Addressed to the maker community. Explore materials like food, silicon, ceramics or any other paste material. What material would you try for printing? Looking for more? Introducing Alberta. Giving you the opportunity to challenge more than one material at once, it lets you create even more advanced things. Two different materials may react chemically, or perhaps bring a whole new functional aesthetic into your creation. What about
composition? Create transitions within your printing, while the physicality shifts in between. Forms and opportunities are immense. People use tools in many different ways, leading to the most fascinating and inspiring outcomes. Your creations are not meant to stay in plastic.

ErdeWachsStift

Industrial Desin

Soil is an essential part of our life – it epitomizes home, fertility, the past and the future. Just as people have different views on soil, the substance itself can differ vastly. The project takes the soil from underground into the open and into focus. Soil and wax are the basis for crayons that allow a different take on our environment. I take a specimen of each and archive it together with the soil pigment. This way a personal collection of my work emerges. Besides these archives, the crayons are still intended to be simple commodities, to be used. The “Sachsen Anhalt” collection consists of the soils of my region and is one humble example of the many possibilities that lie at our very feet.

2K

Industrial Design

In the semester project "my personal factory", I experimented with the topic of foam. The aim was to understand how different foam structures are built up and how they can be specifically influenced. The goal was to produce statically loadable objects. 2k are two components that are complemented by their different properties. The soft, open - cell foam forms the matrix for the injected foam. The material introduced has the possibility to expand freely. In the cured state, a load-bearing connection is thus formed.

COPY & PASTE

Plastic Arts / Ceramics

Sarah Pschorn’s lavish porcelain vases tell the stories of popular contemporary phenomena such as digital natives, hipsters, neo-baroque and pop music – but also those of historical epochs and styles: Copy & paste epitomises a culture of remixing and appropriation. The artist links familiar aspects of history to the personal and the contemporary. The vases serve as receptacles for ideas and thoughts. Layered, cast and collaged using heterogeneous materials, they are never perfect. They stand there in a row, as though holding in their stomachs, often on wobbly legs, each attempting to show off its best side. Each of the vases represents an avowal.Sarah Pschorn sees her work as a plea for mawkishness and sentimentality, for the interplay of gaiety and melancholy. But she also sees it as a confrontation with transience.

Record Lathe

Industrial Design

A converted record player engraves sound-grooves onto old CD - blanks. Every mp3 or sound data file can be sent from a computer to therecord lathe. The result is a 5-inch record made of polycarbonate that can be listened to on standard record players.

Ice cream / Rubber Band

Image Space Object Glass

Ice cream
Ice cream is a humoristic examination of the characteristics of glass while melting athigher temperatures. The project is an approach to the material, which is very variable in its form, surface and colour. Thus the material is not always clearly recognizable. Ice cream is created by kiln casting at
900° C, moulded into form and then cut and polished or sandblasted.

Rubberband

The origin of rubber bands made of glass is based on dealing with tension –an ambivalent issue, particularly when working with glass. On one hand, the glass could get stronger, but tension can also make it break more easily due to offset temperatures. Although tensions are caused by force effects like putting glass under pressure or pulling it, the material has different characteristics depending on its temperature. I formed the rubber bands while heating glass up to 720°C. In this state the glass is very elastic. Cooled to room temperature it becomes fracturable. My aim was to freeze the objects in their tension – in a moment of paradox, unnatural for rubber and impossible for glass.
