Remolten N°1: Revolution Series, 2016-2018

It is dated 2016-2018. Its medium is stool l, flower pot, stool m, wall-mounted lights. It is a part of the department.

For gt2P’s Santiago-based studio, Chile’s volcanoes provide inspiration. The Remolten series of stools and pots are covered in a glaze made from pulverized volcanic stone that, when kiln-fired and cooled at a range of temperatures, results in various textures and colors. The Less CPP lighting series anchors the delicacy of porcelain with the resilience of dark lava. The materials’ close firing temperatures bond them together.
