Water cup fountain

26th November 2012

Ariane Prin who is best known for her 'from here to here' graduation project from the RCA has recently undertaken a residency at DCK (Design Centrum Kielce, Poland).

Taking inspiration from people gathering around fountains during the summer and the history of the building in which the DCK is housed - an old prison up till 1965 where many polish were tortured over the years - she has created water cups fountain.

Continuing with her ethos of using minimal power or creating minimal waste her 'machine' uses clay with a recipe she has designed meaning that the cups only need to be fired once, therefore reducing the power usually used in ceramics.

Her 'machine' produces dripped porcelain cups that each have a unique and random pattern.
