Blind Gallery Reveal #2: FraKtuR
Inspired by Chinese porcelain makers from the 12th century to the Song period...
The second Seed Edition preview collection is called FraKtuR. Its creator is fascinated by the fragmentation process used by Chinese porcelain makers. This collection is inspired by the decorative technique for the so-called "crackle" type of porcelain.
FraKtuR is an algorithmic collection that simulates the porcelain-making process or stages of glaze firing.
“The most famous crackle porcelains come from China from the 12th century to the Song period, and it’s a joy to recreate such an ancient, rich, time demanding technique in an autonomous system."
The algorithm follows a similar procedure to the actual porcelain-making process.
The first step consists in recursively fragmenting a basic polygon.
Then, a discrete Gaussian blur is applied to make the fragmentation irregular.
A color palette is applied randomly, sometimes to a group of fragments and other times individually.
Finally, each fragment is subjected to a more or less marked noise to give texture to the artwork.
FraKtuR will be released during the Blind Gallery Seed Edition via fxhash. You can purchase a Mint Pass on the 6th and 7th of February.
