LIQUID GOLD -tableware
size - 35 cl
material - stoneware ceramics
technique - wheel thrown, decorated with liquid gold year - 2016
place - Helsinki, Finland
Liquid gold additions make ordinary looking tableware objects treasures. Simple decoration makes the user to ask questions. What have happened? Why the gold is melting away. In Finnish Design there is a taboo about unnecessary decorations. You should not make them. For me decoration is necessary to make the ob- ject pop. As well as functionality is important it is important be visible.
