Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters
Porcelain, cobalt, copper
edition of 7 + artist’s proof’s, medium and large
for Christian Ouwens
‘Marine Snow’ is a series of medium and large porcelain plates based on the natural phenomenon that is found in the deep ocean. It’s a continuous shower of mostly organic matter including dead and dying plants and animals feeding organisms in the layers of the ocean that never see the daylight.
Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters created a series of porcelain plates inspired by this sad but beautiful part of nature. In their search of translating the beauty of water in designs and techniques the duo used the behaviour of the ocean to turn an imprint of cobalt and copper glaze into Marine Snow.
The plates will be presented at the solo show Stil Water (Still Water) at Christian Ouwens, Rotterdam. The show opens on the 29th of September 2012.
