Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: This installation is the final result of the three months Artist in Residence project at the European Ceramic Work Center, NL. The installation represents the process and outcome of the traditional methods of the Troyan ceramics applied on a monumental surface and scale. In the light of the entire research, its purpose is to explore the technology and aesthetics of the Troyan ceramic style through combination of the traditional ornament within the body of sculpture. On the other hand, it challenged the established traditional methods, where the experimental approach reached new stage in the conducted research. In summary, its goal was to investigate the conditions and methods of artistic and theoretical practice, that lead to the finding of new forms of artistic expression in the domain of ceramics and contemporary sculpture.
