In commission for Fonk Magazine, I was asked by design agency D8 to make the physical award for The Coolest Dutch Brand 2021.
The concept of using the old ceramic award to make the new one was what brought Graham Sturt to my studio. I put my knowledge of using ceramic waste shards into this project to realize the physical award made from recycled ceramics. I transformed a 2d droplet shape into a 3d design, using hand shaped foam. This allowed me to add curves and details to the design, creating more depth and an interesting shape to look at. The shape is turned into a plaster mold to cast a large percentage (1/3) of shards from the previous award.
