Transformed Stacking Vessel TSV5


Designed and prototyped in 2013
Permanent collection

H. 57cm dia. 34cm
Dimensions are approximate, due to the handmade nature of the materials

Materials : handblown glass (Czech Republic), earthware ceramic (Scotland), handturned wood (Finland)
The materials then come to our warehouse in Germany where they are fitted and assembled.

Challenge : the glass has to be blown first and then fitted to the ceramic bowl, due to the shrinkage of the ceramic in the firing process. The large scale of the piece makes us work with a tolerance of up to 15mm on the diameter. It requires an extremely technical ceramicist to throw large bowls to this precision and weight, even keeping the bowl round is a challenge at this scale.
When (un)stacking the Vessel, take care of the friction between the porous ceramic lip and the polished glass edge to avoid wear.
