in 2005, Hella Jongerius designed "Non Temporary" for Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum. In contrast to the faience and to reduce costs, the Dutch maiolica was only covered on the front with the more expensive white glazing, often covered by a simple painted decoration. The back of this earthenware was treated with a transparent and cheaper lead glazing.
In her design, Hella Jongerius emphasises the transition between transparent and white by having the bowl partially immersed in the tin glaze, the technique that is used to apply the glazing 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 allusion to history and special use of traditional skills.
The vase is of course waterproof and is the only one we have on offer.
This vase is i.a. in the permanent collection of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum ‘s Hertogenbosch, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, Zuiderzee Museum, Enkhuizen.
