STUDIO MAARTEN KOLK & GUUS KUSTERS

Withering Tableware

With the beautiful tableware Withering Tableware, Maarten Kolk and Guus Kusters give a new twist to traditional ways of decorating porcelain. Paintings of plants and flowers are not applied by the designers to the product itself, but to the mould, so that the decorations can be used for multiple castings. Although the process is less time-consuming than the classic approach, each item is still unique, because the flora fades a bit with each successive casting.

With that, the procedure is also a reflection of the wilting process of flowers in nature.
The tableware – consisting of plates, bowls, a cup, a carafe, a saucer and a vase – is executed by Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum, commissioned by Thomas Eyck, who produces and distributes design products under the name t.e.
