Corezone is a closed ceramic space, where one can place their thoughts, feelings, emotions. An attempt to fulfill emotional needs by the means of an object, a try to withhold immaterial being in a material space. Agnieszka Mazur and Dorota Skalska show us the way to express our inner feelings and emotions, to bring them out and secure them in a safe place.
The concept of corezone was originally developed by Dorota during the semester project supervised by Daniel Zielinski. It emerged while she was trying to answer the question if emotional needs could be fulfilled by the means of an object.Â While Dorota was on the search which material would be best for the concept realization Agnieszka came with answer and they joined forces. Soon the first prototypes were realised in the ceramic workshop lead by Justyna BÄ…bel-Piktel. Second round was made during Agnieszka’s scholarship in Berlin in Sabina Selmkeâ€™s workshop in KHB Weisensee school. She also explored possibilities which porcelain gives to the project.
The new corezones are made from porcelain â€“ they are a little bit smaller and whiter than the original ones. The change of material results from the possibilities offered in Kunst Hochschule Weisensee and the eagerness to try new possibilities.
Agnieszka Mazur and Dorota Skalska met at Product Design Faculty Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Before they both had studied something else. Agnieszka resigned from History of Art after four years of study, Dorota bravely finished Applied Linguistics and is going to get her master diploma. The meeting turned into inspiring cooperation which they plan to continue. Their design approaches and experiences complement each other perfectly and lead to interesting observations, exchange and results. They simply make it rock!
