This series of ceramic metal waste tiles from the project Ignorance is Bliss are coloured using 100% pigment derived from industrial metal waste. Collaborating with Dutch companies, such as soil remediation and water treatment plants, designer Agne Kucerenkaite is supplied with raw waste material containing lots of metals. The metals give colour to the ceramic glaze during firing. The composition of the metal waste is the same as industrially produced colour pigments and is therefore a suitable and sustainable alternative. The tiles are coloured by hand. They are suitable for interior walls and are available to order on request.
Kucerenkaite is currently working on expanding the the tile production and making them as sustainable and circular as possible.
