Within the Oer project we investigate different possibilities for the application of iron sludge in ceramics products. The iron sludge is locally sourced from different water production plants or wetlands around Eindhoven (The Netherlands), Fågelsjö (Sweden) and Sardinia.


Each location will give a different shade of iron sludge to ceramic products of the Oer project. In the collection primal, refined and functional forms and materials relate to one of the most important resources of this planet; water. The iron sludge that is used in the clay, engobes and glazes represent the production process of potable water. Thereby the collection brings us closer to something we often take for granted. 

All products are handmade in local ceramics ateliers close to the source.
