Collection: Charta Collection

The Artist’s inspiration for the Charta Alba Collection came from a series of sculptures formed from brown wrapping paper salvaged from an Amazon shipping box. The objective was to create something new out of waste material. The sculptures were created by using a single piece of paper which the artist wound around a vertical axis to create each shape. The wrinkles of the paper created a perfect foundation for the play of light and shadow. The artist wanted to visually transform the supple, brown, low-grade paper into a solid, white, high-end material that would surprise the viewer. Porcelain was the ideal material; revered through the centuries, it had been nicknamed “White Gold” in the 18th century. Charta Alba means “white paper “- a pun that refers to the color of porcelain and the original shape in paper form.

The artist chose the Vienna Augarten Porcelain Manufactory as a collaborative partner. The company is 300 years old and is the second oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe. The quality of their porcelain, especially the bisque they produce, is exceedingly high which was especially important as the unglazed finish does not hide any flaws. Moreover, it requires a lot of know-how, experience and skill to produce the molds for sculptures of this size.
