The biscuit series is part of Attua’s ongoing research of how to combine waste borosilicate glass and ceramics to innovate in ceramics and bring a new life to a material that otherwise will end up in a landfill. The pieces in this series are made using biscuit shaped clay as a building block. Glass is pressed on the wet clay getting embedded into the clay as well as leaving an imprint; glazing and giving shape to the piece in one go. Biscuit in ceramics refers to the first firing cycle and if a glaze is applied a second firing usually follows. These pieces are fired only one time to reduce the CO2 emissions of the making.
