|Detail||White Coral with texture and holes, broken rim|
|Design||Ted Muehling, 2007|
Very few other materials are as perfectly suited to the portrayal of the aquatic realm as porcelain, something that Ted Muehling discovered when he started producing his first designs with the master craftspeople of the manufactory. In 2007, he created this 21 centimetre wide plate, the edge of which gradually phases out as a jagged coral pattern. Its delicate, light transmissive beauty evokes the fragile poetry of the coral. At the same time, it has been designed in the formal tradition of tricky basket and lattice decoration, one of the manufactory’s specialities.
