Lasered Porcelain Foil / Schellack Tiles

As one part of the experiment, I lasered tiles with different patterns on to porcelain foil of 1mm thickness to first create the Moiré effect in flat before going ahead to shaping it into a form. The effect could be seen already in a non-fired state. The challenge here is to keep them in a flat state after firing.

As a second experiment, I am using the Schellack technique to make grids on tiles. The difference here is that I am working with the translucency of the material rather than cutting out some of it. Going further, I will develop several shapes for an object depending on the outcome of the experiments.
