Else by Michal Fargo

Else is a project dealing with the gaps between craft and design. The aim of this project was to create different and authentic ceramic surfaces. By creating a different working technique that does not require molds she was able to design free forms that are not restricted by parting lines and pouring points, she was also able to get different and diverse surfaces. By using sponge models and dipping them into especially composed porcelain mix the mold was eliminated from the process and a new kind of surface was created.
