White Waves Platter
By Nicholas Collins
50cm x 50cm x 8 cm deep
White on White Wave platters are produced using cutting-edge manufacturing technology. It has taken over five hours on a waterjet cutter to cut the individual strands needed to create this design, which is made from sheets of opaque white and semi-translucent white glass..
Each strand is distinctly individual: one strand never appears again in the design making the repeat pattern a complex selection of unique strands.
Once the strands are cut they are cleaned and laid into the design onto a kiln shelf, the lose strands then fuse together at temperatures of around 800°C, where the tile is then cut into its final shape and worked by hand to create a soft edge. The tile is then placed over a ceramic slumping mould and fired again at a lower temperature of around 650°C to form this piece. Once complete this design creates an optical wave effect with the mesmerising sensation of movement.
