Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Erika Emeren has turned a traditional cake-making technique into a method for forming unique ceramic vases.
Emeren’s Ornament Now: Cake Vases are created by applying slip clay to a rotating cylinder of papier-mâché using a piping bag, similar to those used in pastry making and cake decorating. Each vase is then fired and glazed to create a glossy, brightly coloured finish. The process means that every vase has a unique shape.
The process is based on the tradition of making Spettekaka, a traditional confection from Emeren’s homeland of Sweden. The cake is made by baking batter around a spinning dowel – a similar technique can also be found in traditional cakes in other European countries like France and Poland.
