Sjoerd Jonkers Modern Primitive Pots
May 14, 2013 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Influenced by principles of experimental archeology, Dutch artist Sjoerd Jonkers hand crafts pots, vases and bowls using a primitive production technique in which he casts plastics in sand molds.
The resulting black, grey, sand, and stone colored Neolastic (Polyurethane) wares are wonderfully rough-edged and textured with the look of thick stoneware, yet very lightweight and waterproof. I think they make interesting planters.
Recalls my summer camp forays into sand casting when I was so proud to bring my little masterpieces home.
Weigh in below: what do you think of these?
