Pressed earthenware | h 30 cm, w 10 cm | 2009

This house number is a metaphor for a person’s face, as it is the first thing seen when looking for an address. As with other things, a house ages, and along with it, documenting events and changes that occurred in the house. This house number is designed with those aspects in mind. The material chosen is unglazed earthenware, specifically chosen for its porous quality, that accumulates mold if exposed to sun and rain. These exposed traces of mold is meant to record the age of the house by its growing size, and by marking it annually.
