2020 shortlists

Plycelain
by Yuting Chang

Shortlisted for homeware design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Plycelain is a collection of multilayered slip-casting drinkware made from a combination of plywood and porcelain.

The designer created a contemporary version of blue and white ware through applying slip casting, the mass-production technique of ceramics.

Unlike traditional blue and white porcelain, where the decoration is glazed on the surface, Plycelain is built with patterns inside the clay. By adapting the process of slip casting, layers form and subtle blue lines are exposed on the cut surfaces.

The old spirit of blue-and-white is now embedded inside the clay, and has been transformed into a modern geometric profile.
