BOTTLE VASES

Bottle Vases by Foekje Fleur van Duin

Our modern throw-away society still produces objects of beauty and permanence - you just need to know where to look. In the "Bottle" series trash from the canals of Rotterdam, Holland is redefined as something worth keeping. An artistic dialogue is opened with plastic bottles that are commemorated in durable, natural colored porcelain that begs to be handled and admired. Ordinary objects intended for the trash heap transform into art and a philosophical debate ensues: what meaning can we ascribe to objects that were meant to have none?

Each style in the Bottle series is available in five to seven colors of the range, comprised of eleven colors in total. Each Bottle is glazed on the interior and is water-tight. The exterior surface is unglazed.

COLD MOUNTAIN VASES

Cold Mountain wares are inspired by the poet Han Shan ("Cold Mountain") who lived circa 800 AD. These wares are intended to evoke the sensations derived from reading his timeless poems. Bright water shimmers like crystal, Translucent to the furthest depth. Mind is free of every thought Unmoved by the myriad things. Since it can never be stirred It will always stay like this. Knowing, this way, you can see, There is no within, no without. -- translated by AS Kline 30

MIDDLE KINGDOM MIDDLE KINGDOM Middle Kingdom wares are inspired by a long and distinguished history of design and craftsmanship in Chinese porcelain, but we contribute a fresh and invigorating style to the genre. Bo Jia and Alison Alten established the Middle Kingdom kiln in 1998 to revive and broaden Chinese porcelain traditions for a modern audience. New works of imperial caliber are now available for everyone. Middle Kingdom's highly trained artisans work at a modern facility designed in the regional style near the site of the imperial kilns. The apprenticeship tradition established in antiquity lives on at Middle Kingdom, in much the same way it has for hundreds of years. Our work in all aspects of design and manufacture ensures that Middle Kingdom wares are finely crafted and are of the highest quality. We carefully select the finest clays, work with unique glazes and color blends, and design lyrical works that speak to history and modernity. Our seamless intertwining of design and craftsmanship creates restrained, beautiful works that gain a page in the long story of our chosen medium - earth. We are also pleased to introduce the work of several talented designers who share our vision to create works of purposeful artistry and integrity. We too are curious to see where these and future collaborations lead.

For all inquiries please contact us via phone, email or our web site, listed on the front and back covers of this catalogue.
