In 2005 Hella Jongerius designed 'Non Temporary' for Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum. For cost reasons and contrary to the faience, the Dutch majolica was only covered on the front with the more expensive white tin glaze, often with a simple painting on it. The back of this earthenware was treated with a transparent and cheaper lead glaze.
In her design, Hella Jongerius highlights the transition between transparent and white by partially dipping the vase in tin glaze, the technique by which the glaze is applied to the pieces. By doing this, she not only focuses attention on the production process by making it part of the decoration, but also reveals the colour of the Frisian clay for the first time in centuries. The result is an attractive vase with a contemporary reference to the history and special use of the craft.
The vase is of course waterproof and it is the only one we can offer.
This vase is included in the permanent collection of, among others, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum 's Hertogenbosch, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, Zuiderzee Museum, Enkhuizen
