Sometimes art is more of a science than an art.
Artist Kevin Kowalski proves that through his work with ceramics.
Using a technique known as “Mocha Diffusion”, Kowalski is able to make beautiful, natural patterns by dabbing small amounts of pigment onto his vases.
When the pigment meets the medium, a chemical reaction occurs. The bases and acids react with each other, leaving intricately detailed patterns on the pottery.
The technique itself is incredibly old, but the results are just as beautiful today as they’ve ever been. Check out Kowalski’s method at work in the video below! It’s simply mesmerizing.
