|Product:||Delftware, various glazes, the product is shaped and baked from local clay. A tin glaze made in-house is applied to the baked shard. The raw glaze is painted, after which the product is carefully baked a second time. A series of existing models from the traditional collection of plates and dishes served as a basis. The decoration is partly made through transfers and partly through hand painting.|
Patchwork plates is the series designed by Marcel Wanders. He found the majolica plates in our traditional collection particularly charming. He selected five different sizes from the archive and designed thirty different decorations that were transferred using a silkscreen printing technique on to the raw glaze to which gold lustre was applied. By leaving a blank space each time, which was filled in later by our painters, he not only illustrated the contrast between the two techniques, but also used the opportunity to demonstrate different aspects of the painter's work. Hence an intriguing twenty-first centry series of plates was created, one that enhances our contemporary collection.
