Incompatible Amalgamation Vessel II
Incompatible Amalgamation Vessel II by East London-based craft maker Attua Aparicio. Inspired by the interplay between craft and technology, Attua aims to express the unexplored potential of industrial materials. This piece forms part of a series developed during a material research project, initiated by Attua, whilst on a residency at the European Ceramic Work Centre (EKWC). Undertaken in the Summer of 2018, Attua's research focused on using waste from the glass industry in ceramics. Navigated via a responsive approach to testing, Attua focused on borosilicate glass: a material that is currently discarded in landfill.
