    During her three months work period at the European Ceramics Work Centre ‘modular porcelain’ was Ineke Hans’ major project on the theme of reproduction. In the ceramic industry, it’s usual to ‘glue’ an ear to a cup with slip clay before firing. Starting from this reality she thought out a modular system, reducing the amount of moulds used, for making virtually anything you like. Producing only five shapes - three sizes of tubes, a corner and a ‘plunger’ – this means that tulip vases, coffee pots, five armed candleholders and so on can be ‘glued’. A kind of ceramic LEGO results, connected by trimming. All the shapes are tuned so that they can be used in different ways: a narrow tube has an inside diameter appropriate for candles and outside diameter to be used for grips. This modular project is cast in black porcelain. The black pigment weakens the already ‘deformation-sensitive’ porcelain, making this project even more amazing. The porcelain, being black however, intensifies the graphic, or pictogram, nature of the objects.
