Description

Drinking water supply and soil remediation industries produce thousands of tonnes of metal residue a year. In an effort to find a use for this byproduct, Agne Kucerenkaite has developed ceramic pigments from this waste. Surprisingly, the irregularities present in residue lead to more vibrant design objects. Reusing waste decreases the need of natural resources, reduces environmental pollution and allows materials to be used to their fullest extent.

Each porcelain piece is hand-crafted and fired in a unique reduction gas oven. Such an oven eliminates oxygen during firing, contributing to the appearance of the glaze. All ceramic pieces are food-safe and come with a custom box. One-of-a-kind porcelain round plate coloured purely using pigments from waste.
