Paper Porcelain- Scholten & Bailjins

paperporcelainThe designers drew inspiration from paper and the way it folds and creases, I like how they translated these qualities into porcelain, showing off how delicate and elegant paper folds can be.

The porcelain has a slightly speckled appearance to give it an authentic likeness of coarse recycled paper.

These pieces emphasise to me that designs don’t need to be extravagant, and that small details can create strong and graceful designs. The delicate pleats create uniform, minimalistic and powerful pieces.

I want to translate this delicate way of working into my exploration of wood. Wood is commonly thought of as a tough robust building material used to make strong pieces of furniture. However, I believe that I can use it to create something delicate changing people’s perception of wood.
