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 hand-painted plate is inspired by simple rural patterns and outlines from the majolica archive of the Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum. The result is a series of attractive products with a contemporary allusion to history and special use of traditional skills.
This plate was added to the permanent collections at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the Design Museum Den Bosch, the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and the Zuiderzee Museum, Enkhuizen, among others.
Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum halted the production of this plate in 2015. This is the last available plate.
This plate has some small damage at the back, see picture.
