The quality of porcelain is best reflected through its fine and delicate properties, a quality that is not celebrated when using a mold. Marcel Wanders has developed a technique to produce porcelain objects without the use of plaster molds. A synthetic sponge is taken and dipped in a fluid porcelain clay slip. The clay impregnates the foam. Once the foam has dried, the foam is fired within a kiln. The foam is burnt away and the perfect white porcelain replica of the foam remains. An intelligent manufacturing process that has the ability to show the intricate qualities of porcelain clay. Manufactured by Moooi.
