Hand-turned checkered cylinder in white porcelain clay with white glaze with brushed black horizon. The horizon may vary slightly. The cylinder is part of a family of vases, vessels and bowls with graphic designs.
Skymning till Mork is a collection in porcelain clay that is the result of a collaboration with the designer Synnöve Mork. She mainly works with textiles and loves stripes and checks, and this time she has transferred the patterned surfaces onto ceramic works in collaboration with us at Paradisverkstaden.
The shapes are classic, both cast and turned and conceived as functional objects. The blackness, the contrasts and the play with the different techniques have resulted in a number of patterned shapes "From Dusk to Darkness". Broad brushstrokes, thread-thin lines and airbrush in sooty areas. The raw meets the slightly more refined. An idea of the hours between dusk and dawn. When the tones blur and everything becomes graphic horizon lines, shadows and dimensions.
Synnöve almost always works with paper models, scale forms to find the right measurements and scale of the patterns. The collaboration with Familjen Paradis has given her insight into the complexity of clay and experiences around how to apply patterns to the vessels.
Synnöve is a designer of textiles and patterns, exhibition architect for companies, shops, fairs, photographers and interior design magazines. She has been a lecturer in textile design at Konstfack, a design consultant for stores and companies and a lot of other things over the years. Her patterns and countless variations of stripes are recognizable at Linum and IKEA, among others. in them you can clearly see her skill in the art of combining balance, proportion and rhythm.
