About Ingrid Wens

'I'm a Dutch maker, I make functional earthenware pieces using clay slabs and moulds. In 2015, I graduated in ceramics and I've been selling my work online since 2017. I love antique pottery with all its little "mistakes". Tiny pinholes, a bit of warping, small damages made by a kiln prop... Those flaws show us the people behind the tableware; the makers and the ones who used it.

 

This platter is part of a collection of dinnerware that has been derived, with permission, from antique platters from the collection of the Dutch National museum. In my search to transfer those designs to clay, I started looking into contemporary techniques which give us artists so many exciting new possibilities. After a half year of regular trial and error visits to the fablab in my hometown, I was able to use the lasercutter to create molds which combined with clay slabs are turned into the plates and platters that are part of this collection. Oscillating between the contemporary and the historical, the platter has a raised pattern, is partly glazed and is sealed to make it food safe.
