yuting chang’s plywood-inspired porcelain


What do you get when you combine the multi-layered look of plywood with traditional blue-and-white porcelain? Ta da, you’ve got plycelain! Chicago-based Taiwanese designer Yuting Chang coined the term to describe her minimalist porcelain creations, which are made by slowly adding up to 29 layers of clay into a mould through a process called slip casting. It’s a lot like the way plywood is made using thin stacks of timber. Cutting through the clay reveals lovely thin blue lines – a matte, modern version of porcelain ceramics, in which decoration is added via glaze. Take a closer look at Yuting's clever works over here.
