Skull Edition Voyage

The yearly edition of the "Limited Edition Skull", which began in 2010 and is limited to 25 pieces in each case, will be continued in 2015 with "Voyage". This year, a map, a compass, and magnificent ornaments in shiny gold adorn the completely handmade skull made of white glazed porcelain. The sculptural still life entitled "Voyage" deals with the transience of all earthly things. Not only the shape of the skull, but also the decoration, is in keeping with the Vanitas motif, because the earthly world is symbolised by the map.

All the skulls are created as unique pieces with different sections of the world map. The monochromatic colour palette in shades of brown gives the world map a historical look and is reminiscent of early cartographical representations used by sailors. The compass as a navigational tool is especially detailed and accurate. Every single piece in the strictly limited "Voyage" edition bears the personal signature of the craftsmen who are involved in its preparation. In particular, the gold decoration is a testament to the skill of the master porcelain craftsmen. The extravagant line composition in 24-carat fine gold evokes associations with travel to distant lands and humanity's relating longing to discover the world and its treasures.
