ICEBERG SERIES – This work is about the beauty to be found in apparently random natural forms. As in nature, my porcelain pots have an underling coded structure and logic. The algorithm used to generate these shapes has an inbuilt randomness, a ‘noise’ value actually and I am interested how similar this is to the erosion of icebergs. The natural structures have an underling logic that computer code can mimic so a different and original object is created each time the code is run. The cumulative layering of the 3D printer’s extrusion recalls the glacial strata of icebergs, and offers a sense of process and time. The choice to use white porcelain is also deliberate so as to echoes the translucency of ice – the process, material and content of the work are one.
