The Symbiosis of Stoneware & Porcelain

In a search for complementary working methods, Dienke Dekker and Daniel Costa researched stoneware and porcelain, two materials which also complement each other. The project investigates the behavioural and aesthetic qualities of two distinct types of ceramics. Mixing, layering and combining them they gained a unique insight into both materials. This is reflected in the objects, in which the two complement, reinforce or change each other. The result is a three-dimensional ceramic portfolio; a playful system that explores the symbiotic relationship between the two materials and presents possible uses for products and spaces.
