Plissé owes its shape to an authorial technique in which a hand-woven cloth is dipped in liquid porcelain and together with a cardboard frame fired at a high temperature of 1260°C. In this inversion casting process, the weave and paper burn out during the firing and evaporate as a "lost casting". At the same time, the porcelain hardens and acquires the shape of the fabric.
This experimental technique plays with the softness of the cloth and the fragility of porcelain, marrying both into a frozen image of one moment in time.

The technique was awarded in Techtextil Student Competition "Textile Structures for New Building 2019".
