Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

soylent green is an edition of 19 unique glass vases.

The glass objects are produced within a flexible mould. A specific designed production process is connecting the traditional craftsmanship of glass making with an innovative production concept. The highly flexible mould allows to manufacture in series by embracing the natural behaviour of the formed glass.

The design of the glas bodies is not entirely controlled by the mould or the glass maker. It is a correspondence between craftsman and the movement of the melted glass. Through that innovative process the glass itself is becoming an autark formbgeber.
Therefore all glass bodies are unique specimens which can be seen as frozen snapshot of the ability of this synthetic material to become an autark formgeber.

Soylent green is produced in cooperation with traditional glass makers at Niessenglas in Switzerland. The edition is an example for the highest quality of material and craftsmanship.

Contemporary design should not strive for innovative industrial production only. It needs to be seen as a way to innovate and integrate traditional craft. Traditional craft itself contains the knowledge and innovations of centuries.
Objects made by craftsman are sediments of our cultural development. They silently contain sociological, political and technical ideas of their times.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Berlin

Based in: Berlin

Katharina Ruhm’s work exists between critical design and sculpture–she embraces her making processes (and collaborations) for the functional or conceptual to materialize. Each of her projects are firm reflections on mass and serial production. Katharina’s design results from considerate observations of production processes, and how different materials naturally behave. These observations inform her ability to allow for natural behaviours in her own making, and therefore the 'true quality' within the processed materials. It is as if the material itself were an almost autark "formgeber" (shape former). Katharina desires disparities, transformations and even mistakes. It is not a constructed idea or a precise shape that first determines her outcomes–Katharina gives way for the material to take the lead in the process.
