Spongeware is best expressed as an accumulation of unlikely contrasts. Flat cleaning sponges are sewn together to make soft textured moulds for porcelain slip. Dirty sponges are transformed into a clean contemporary line for a utilitarian tea service. A porous material is transformed into a functional vessel.
Ironically, the everlastingness of the pure white porcelain immortalises the cellulous sponges that are 100% biodegradable.
