dinner is served

“I enjoy the challenge of finding innovative solutions to the centuries old problems regarding functional ceramics. I am inspired by the fact that despite thousands of years of pottery making, we can still leave our studios today having created something new. The idea of form following function still rings true, however; I believe that function can, at times, be persuaded to follow sculptural form, thus creating an interesting dialogue between utility and sculpture.” Eric Van Eimeren

eric van eimeren's five dishes with spoons and a central covered jar that rotates on a lazy susan base is a complex design. octopus? sea urchin? alien robot? i can't figure out what it reminds me of, but i do know that his teapots, condiment drawers, bowls and spoons are enchanting and well executed. a fresh spin on ordinary dinnerware. delicious.
