This project seeks for distinction between the thinking mind and the thinking body. Man finds comfort in nature, but creates comfort in the objects she designs. These different approaches of interest and the varying aesthetic and functional outcomes they can result in is an essential topic in this work.

The products are originally made from sand molding using alabaster. Each formation has to cure in the sand mold for about 12 hours before it can be liberated from the sand and then translated into Jesmonite.

Size small & large. Large measures ca 40 cm and small 30cm Ø.

Exposure and inducing are two main components in the process. It's a collaboration between sand and designer, where the sand’s physical properties and expressions has been both the prerequisites and the limitations. With the human body as an exposing force the products could be seen as castings of a dialogue about creation between man and matter.
