Craft + 3D

CARVED is created in a unique way: merging craft and 3D-techniques. It is a collaboration between Linde Freya Tangelder and Mieke Cuppen.

A handmade wooden plate shows the origin of the tableware design.

Stoneware items are provided with a new skin of carvings. The application of this on the original models is done by the skillful hand of Linde. The next step is 3D-scanning this texture and translating it into a 3D-stamp to apply digitally on the designed items. In this way a handmade object can be replicated and applied other shapes. The Portuguese factory translates this digital design into a stoneware product.

The 3D designs that have been translated into ceramics.

This process blends the visions and methods of Linde and Mieke seamlessly. Combining craftsmanship with 3D-techniques, the manual with the mass. It provides the hospitality market with a tableware design that finds its origin in limited edition pieces.


Carved is a tableware set that combines the ways of working of Linde Freya Tangelder and Mieke Cuppen. Two pretty contrasting worlds meet in one design.
