Sculptures Made From ‘Magnetic Clay’ by Jolan Van der Wiel
Magnets might hold mysterious appeal for some, but for Jolan Van der Wiel, they’re just another tool. For the past few years, the Dutch designer has been experimenting with magnetism to shape and create objects like violent looking stools and futuristic couture dresses.
His most recent investigation, Architecture Meets Magnetism, has led him to create a series of ceramic objects that look like Tim Burton got a hold of a kiln. Like Van der Wiel’s previous projects, this process begins by mixing metal with the core material. In this case, he created a slip (a mixture of clay and water) and added metallic powder like iron. The ratio is typically 90 percent clay, 10 percent metal. From there, he pipes this mixture through a nozzle, layering it on itself like icing on a cake. As the group of surrounding magnets take hold, the material is pulled into shape and dries like a spiky Hershey’s Kiss.
