Liquid Series by Alissa Volchkova

Alissa Volchkova explores production processes in her collection of bowls, called the Liquid Series. First, she creates a perfectly round bowl or a plate by slip casting and then a series of dyed slip is randomly poured over the edges until dry creating a beautifully random piece of functional art with organic edges. By combining the two processes, the end result is a mix between perfection and haphazardness, only determined by where and how the slip moves and how it holds up in the kiln during firing. Once fired, the pieces are completely functional for use or they can be combined and stacked into various artistic configurations.

The Liquid Series will be on display in the Composed Exhibition at Ventura Lambrate in Milan.
