Bibendum Vase (Dark Grey) (Medium) by Arjan Van Dal references modernist designer Ettore Sottsass, resulting in a piece that redefines the notion of craft in a design-led narrative. The shape, inspired by Bibendum (the Italian name for Michelin) was specifically designed to create a surface which light interacts with, rebounding off the coloured porcelain.
Dimensions: Height: 15cm, Length: 14cm, Width: 14cm.
Care Instructions: Wipe with damp cloth.
The stained porcelain is created by wedging pigments into the clay body by hand. The piece is then thrown on the wheel in various stages to produce the sharp curves of the Bibendum form. Once leatherhard, the shape is refined and the rolls accentuated.
Following a successful career working for the Dutch Commission to UNESCO, Arjan Van Dal began his “second career” in ceramics in 2015 having studied in his spare time under the watchful eye of Raymundus van Kessel. He was taken on as an assistant to Hitomi Hosono before being selected for the Crafts Council Hothouse Programme in 2016. Arjan has since exhibited his work across the globe, notably at the International China Craft Week in Hangzhou, and he was also commissioned to create an entire dinner range for Gazelle Mayfair.
