Ceramic Paint, Collection Cornwall

Kirstie van Noort has made a colour palette consisting of 108 different colours made with resources from the porcelain, tin and copper industries in Cornwall. The colours display the richness of the landscape in which these industries were once active. In order to turn them into ceramic paints, the resources were dried, powdered and watered down, after which they have been applied to earthenware, stoneware or porcelain as a colouring. Ceramic Paint, Collection Cornwall consists of a book and a box. The book provides an overview of all the steps to develop the colours; the box displays a selection of 42 colour samples, making the collection tangible.
