ceramics: Étude Géométrique

29.8.11

Étude Géométrique is a ceramics collection by Ann van Hoey for Serax. A collection of basic forms. Ann came up with the idea of folding thin sheets of clay when she saw origami artists at work in Japan. The collection grew from a a bowl with four corners and the logical next step was the confrontation between the circle and the triangle.

I think the geometrics are really stunning when looking at the pictures. Just like my post last week this is also a piece of art on your table and you can really make some beautiful table settings with this collection. It is almost like filling an empty canvas with forms, colors and food to make up your own beautiful piece of art and composition.

ceramics: Perfect Imperfection

22.8.11



The first part of a series I will be showing here about some beautiful and special ceramic collections.

Perfect Imperfection by Roos van de Velde for Serax is a porcelain range that is a symbol of innovation in several ways. The collection is produced where the imperfection, defectiveness and coincidence are given the chance to play their part during the production process. The collection is like balancing on a thin wire.

Love the thin look of all the parts and how they are perfectly imperfect together. I can see a table setting with this whole collection...beautiful and poetic. A little story on the table....100% love!

String Gardens

8.8.11



The story behind String Gardens starts 3 years ago. Fedor van der Valk, the designer of String Garden, has always had a love for seeds, plants and trees. He started experimenting with 3D crocheting and covered it with several materials like clay, earth and grasses. After that he tried this technique with small room- and garden plants. The result is String Garden, hanging plants who seem to be floating in the air.

Love this technique and it feels somehow a bit poetic to me. A beautiful alternative way to have plants.
