IGNORANCE IS BLISS Tableware

Designer: Agnė Kučerenkaitė
Design Academy Eindhoven

Ignorance Is Bliss is a set of tableware, glass plates and table runners created in an effort to find new uses for metal waste. Six different samples of sludge from environments such as a zinc factory, soil remediation and water companies were collected. The designer then experimented with various techniques to use this waste in a transformative manner. Metals have colouring properties when applied to certain materials. Agnė mixed the waste with porcelain clay, glaze, glass and textiles. These pieces will hopefully become a thread connecting past abuse with current reuse, and future (blissful) awareness.
