Match and Mismatch

I was partnered with a furniture student and given a product they produced for a recent project, we were to work with them as if they were a client and learn as much as we could about the product. Putting together a photography-based project that communicates the essence of the object. I was partnered with Cecelia Back, who had produced patterned ceramic plates, that could be used for decoration or tableware. Researching the clay material and the process of ceramics, I developed the project towards a photography route that illustrated the process of ceramics and complemented the patterns of the plate. I photogramed slip I painted onto acetate, and these images worked to communicate the natural beauty of the products material and its patterns.
