Glaze & texture
A series of plates for Vista Alegre Atlantis. There is interaction between light and shadow on the unglazed porcelain. The interplay between glaze and texture gives the plate both a decorative element as well as functionality.
New top mold
For the Texture collection an existing lower mold of the plate was used (33 cm) and a new top mold was designed. In this way the high-pressure casting technique can be applied without the high initial investment. Giving a new function to an existing form.
_ “Just as its name suggests, this set of plates designed by the Dutch tableware specialist, Mieke Cuppen, places emphasis on texture. Texture allows playing with plating, thanks to a surface that influences how and where food is placed. The transition from a soft glazed texture to one that is unglazed, in addition to the interactions and contrasts arising with other pieces and materials stand to make this piece even more tempting.”
