great to show the deformation that the artist applied by allowing the fire to do its work.
Porcelain shrinks 20% in the process of coming from mud to the stunning translucent material you see here.
That shrinking comes with deformation, of course.
One can do a lot to not-have-this-happen, but Jeroen rather 'plays' with this phenomenon...
By 'talking' to his material, playing it, allowing it, he achieves the most stunning porcelains available...
