Papyrus / Porcelain collection


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

The Papyrus collection includes plates, cups, dishes and vases with varying reliefs and structures which can be used in a variety of different ways. The structure of the thin, almost transparent porcelain mirrors the form-finding method: the porcelain has neither been derived from a drawing nor from a stereolithography. The idea was much more straightforward and the design was inspired by a rolled up stripe of paper and by a gesture which lends the form movement. As if on a lathe, the paper grows around itself stripe by stripe. The object that emerges is both unusual and individual.

I actually own the white vase in the picture and it's absolutely stunning. The piece is delicate and sophisticated. I actually love this piece. Thank you Rosenthal.
