ash&oil soap

Course topic/s

MA Practice Based Course




This is a soap made only from left over materials of the neighbourhood don bosco, bz. Used frying oil from a kebap stall, ashes from a pizza place and rain water. We want to transform material perceived as dirty and useless into something clean and precious. Furthermore we focused on giving a second purpose to former leftover materials which are produced in gastronomy in high quantities. The process could either work systematically, when the materials are picked up from several restaurants and sourced in the neigbourhood. But it could also be a DIY project for households because the same leftovers are created in numerous homes.
