One of the biggest challenges, says Farresin, was finding an appropriate form to convey their concept. “We had all this data about the number of refugees, when they were coming, and how many per day. We thought we could use it to create a form on the computer. But that was such an abstract solution. Looking at the object, you’d never connect it back with the original piece.” The duo kept an inspiration wall to remind them how far they could go depicting the story in ceramic while staying true to the original piece.
