Salt Saucer

Manufacturer

Regular price $20

Part of an initiative to celebrate the 400-year anniversary of the famous Japanese pottery town Arita, with its network of over 200 mutually-supporting manufactories and industrial enterprises, the 25-piece service SD/2016 looks at the expertise found in traditional craftsmanship as an original source of inspiration and applies it to the industrial process.

German designer Stefan Diez developed this tableware series that is striving to become a modern standard, having meticulously researched the cultural balance that exists between the Asian and Western approaches to food. One result of contemporary efficient manufacturing is that much of the porcelain produced today has lost its former exclusivity, a fact that led Diez to have misgivings about this shift towards standardisation and instead to propose a modern-day collection that still sought out the cherished skills of the craftsman. This beautiful tableware series is defined by each object’s delicate lines running uninterrupted from the sides to the interior.

“I took out the stand or ‘foot’ that is a common feature in Japanese tableware. They are largely quiet designs, intended to be unobtrusive on a table.”
