Trace is a collection of cups and bowls that show an individual pattern, a trace.
The relief on the outer shell shows grains and seeds, that can be stored inside.
During the burning process the organic material is burnt away, leaving its negative shape, slightly abstracted.
Declaring porcelain as my working material, I not only wanted to work traditionally but I wanted to manipulate the material. With salt, sand, stones, grains and seeds, that I mixed in the liquid porcelain mass, I managed to change the composition of the material. At their former place the porcelain left a space in their shape. Shapewise I decided for cups and stackable bowls for storing, accompanied by interlayers of cork. Each storing bowl reveals its content through the traces left by the burnt away seed or grain. The coloring of the collections fades from rich yellow to the classical porcelain white.
