One Week About Clean Revolution by Leonne CuppenShadows of Light

Jingdezhen (China) is famous for its porcelain, made from kaolinite that is mined around the city and creates the typical translucency of the chinaware. But this specific clay has become less pure and greyer in recent decades, and by now almost half of the production is discarded as waste, mostly because of imperfection. Lotte Douwes was struck by seeing this and developed translucent porcelain made from recycled waste material. In producing her “No Waste” tableware collection, she re-used all bits and pieces. Even the leftover drips were collected and rolled out into a clay slab from which she made coasters and jewelry.
