“STITCHED URN” is the result of a visual and haptic exploration into the perversion of materials. The Urns' appear to be soft and malleable but are actually hard and fragile.
The urns are made from a cross-pollination of mediums and crafts, stitched together to make a vessel form. Its tactile nature is captured through the process of slip casting. The vessel is fired and sets the object with a sense of permanency. The urn holds a balance of senses somewhere between hard, soft, durable and fragile.

STUDIO HÖGL BOROWSKI
“BERRY BONBONS” and “NOUGATS”
In their unique pieces, objects and products the relationship between materiality and sensoric qualities is key. Matthias fascination for technology, craftsmanship, shapes and proportions and that of Stefanie for spatial mood, colour and materiality and telling stories cross in an intriguing way.
Since their existence, studio Högl Borowski balance between product and furniture design and sculptural objects, always aiming to conceive, compose, imagine and present a sequence of sensations that exite.
The works occupy a unique place between conceptual projects, object design with food as a strong source for inspiration.

In the process of making these vases, two phases of the same material react upon each other in a biochemical struggle. The primary shape of these vessels, which is based on one mold, is first cast and dried. Afterwards this basic shape is immersed in newly mixed plaster. During the immersion the newly mixed and still liquid plaster clings to basic form.
Through the combination of control and letting the plaster react freely, the material forms its own unique cover. Here the plaster is not applied as a secondary material, but shown in its autonomous qualities and capabilities.
Via multiple immersions in different mixtures of liquid plaster, the vessel is covered with several unique layers. The inner shape keeps its clean design, whilst the outside becomes rough and irregular.
Phases are part of the design collection of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Stedelijk Museum Den Bosch and Museum of Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
Technique: manual rotation molding and immersion
