The quality of porcelain is best reflected through its fine and delicate properties, a quality that is not celebrated when using a mold. marcel wanders has developed a technique to produce porcelain objects without the use of plaster molds. A synthetic sponge is taken and dipped in a fluid porcelain clay slip. the clay impregnates the foam. Once the foam has dried, the foam is fired within a kiln. the foam is burnt away and the perfect porcelain replica of the foam remains. an intelligent manufacturing process that has the ability to show the intricate qualities of porcelain clay.
