Designed Breakability

Porcelain and ceramics redirect attention to fragile beauty

Implications - Designers are increasingly applying porcelain and its theme to their creations, indicating a new aesthetic direction that underlines elegance, soft beauty, fragility--even "breakability." This shift towards delicacy in design may be particularly appealing to consumers who find bold, bright colors or rough and tough aesthetics -- often found in today's fashion and art industries -- to be too abrasive or overwhelming.
