Sylvie Godel Creates Stacked Vases From Bowls Found in China

Swiss porcelain artist Sylvie Godel lived in Jingdezhen, China, during an artist residency and during that time noticed piles of discarded bowls and plates all around the city. That led Godel to begin collecting them, and with additional plates purchased, she made stacks to create plaster molds to slipcast. The finished bone china vases, called Piles, give nod to the city’s tradition of producing porcelain art, while also honoring the bowl as an archetypal object that dates back to the beginning of civilization.
