Called Reversed Volumes, the vessels are made by packing ceramic powder around vegetables where it hardens without firing, leaving a detailed imprint inside each container. Mischer’Traxler presented the project at Foodmarketo, a collaboration between Apartamento magazine and Designmarketo for Milan 2010.
The space between a vessel and a fruit/vegetable is filled with ceramics. After the original organic material is taken away, the bowl preserved the actual imprint. The use of ceramic powder, which becomes really hard without being fired, gives the possibility that each bowl is as unique as the actual used fruit /vegetable. Therefore each cast bowl is an unique piece. The surface of each fruit/vegetable is detailed represented and let’s the user see it from a different view.
