Crisis is a simple slip-casted ceramic tray, almost ubiquitous in its typology.

This project originates from repeated experiments with foam and its capability to disintegrate under the influence of certain solutions such as acetone. Treated foam was then establsihed as a positive for the plaster mold. The transition from the experimentation to the slip-casting process provides an evolution from a 'one-off' activity to a mechanized solution.

Crisis embraces the improvised attitude which sparked the project, therefore portraying a visual language of material decomposition.
