D10. Crafts of Resistance

Circularity / Material Research / Craftsmanship
Tutors: Stéphane Barbier Bouvet, Dick Van Hoff, Nicholas Korody, Nadine Botha, Marina Otero Verzier, Raphael Coutin. @ Design Academy Eindhoven, June 2023.

“Crafts of Resistance draws from the spirit of resilience with which individuals in Lima address adversity by ingeniously refashioning jobs around unexpected services. Similarly, the project explores the idea that scarcity can become a creative propeller, by repetitive making cups based on free materials and social opportunities in the vicinity of the workspace. The form and production of the cups are a gauge of the privileges of the craftsperson in particular contexts. Refusing the status of an object, the cups also become a material to be repurposed and reworked in ways that resist finality. These are some of Daniela’s findings regarding the vast possibilities of artisanal production beyond a Western framework.” - Excerpt for Dutch Design Week 2022.

This being said, I find problem-solving through making to be a powerful methodology. It rises questions of what is really essential, what can be replaced or solved in alternative ways and what is the aesthetic value that we give to objects.

Ceramics is a discipline that has taught me to design in a process-centered way. I apply it in different contexts, materials and ideas. It has also taught me about existing social hierarchies surrounding the material world: colonial power structures of extraction that remain to this day.

The collection of objects is a reflection of the context where the making took place. “Emmasingel 14 Eindhoven, The Netherlands. 2022-2023”. I picture that every collection will look different as it consists mainly of what is there at a given time.
