Dust Matters

17th June 2014

In a world that strives for perfection, cleanliness is in some cases akin to holiness - but not for Lucie Libotte a recent graduate from Material Futures at CSM.

Exploring dust and its role in our urban existence Lucie has found the beauty in the immaterial and the unwanted.

Her project ‘Dust Matters’ aims to re-evaluate views on dust from a 'dirt' to a story teller about our lives. Taking dust from peoples homes she has used the dust as a ceramic glaze that behaves differently depending on the particles of metal, organic and synthetic matter that makeup the dust samples.

The resulting bespoke vessels display unique beauty that tell a different story from each location that the dust was collected.

Lucie's project along with the other graduating students is on show at CSM from tomorrow until sunday.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
