Uniquely Formed Porcelain Dishes

The Erosion Set by Studio Floris Wubben is Made via Fire & Water

— March 25, 2016 — Art & Design
Fire and water might be opposing elements, but they come together to help create the Erosion set, a collection of stunning porcelain cups and bowls. Interestingly enough, the collection isn't inspired by the elements specifically, but by the solar system in general.

To create the beautiful patterns, the unbaked porcelain is first etched using a gas burner’s flame creating a unique, erosion-like texture often found on planets. Secondly, various glaze techniques are applied to finish the pieces with contrasting colors. The Erosion set was designed by Studio Floris Wubben and boasts a slew of different designs -- each more organic than the next. It's made for people who appreciate craftsmanship and one of a kind designs.
Trend Themes
1. Erosion-like Texture - Creating unique erosion-like textures on ceramics using flame etching techniques opens up opportunities for innovative surface designs in home decor and tableware.
2. Contrasting Glaze Techniques - Experimenting with various glaze techniques to create contrasting colors on ceramic products provides a disruptive innovation opportunity for the ceramics industry to attract customers seeking unique and visually striking designs.
3. Organic Design Inspiration - Drawing inspiration from natural elements like the solar system and planets can lead to the development of organic and artistic designs in the field of ceramics, offering a fresh and distinct aesthetic for customers.
Industry Implications
1. Ceramics - The ceramics industry can explore innovative techniques like flame etching and contrasting glazes to elevate their product offerings and differentiate themselves in the market.
2. Home Decor - Incorporating ceramics with unique erosion-like textures and contrasting glaze colors can introduce disruptive and visually appealing design elements to the home decor industry, capturing the attention of design-conscious consumers.
3. Tableware - Integrating the use of erosion-inspired porcelain dishes with organic and artistic designs in the tableware industry can create a distinct dining experience for customers, offering an opportunity to stand out in the market.
