Slumping and warping are effects the ceramic industry usually strives to avoid. By encouraging random distortion during firing, I aimed to exploit the unique character of bone china and challenge the view of what is 'right' or 'wrong' in ceramics. What could be seen as a fault becomes a feature, giving rise to the possibility of mass-produced individuality. The design is based on traditional Chinese paper lanterns. I wanted to recreate the concertina effect of these lanterns using bone china, thereby giving the impression of malleability and movement in a hard, static material. The pieces start off symmetrical but subsequently warp in a unique way, each one caught at a different point of collapse: no two lights are the same.
