Layers of Landscape

Reworked Ceramic Artworks by Caroline Slotte

Ever wish you could breathe new life into old ceramic plates?  Finnish artist Caroline Slotte certainly does.  She adopts second-hand ceramic plates, especially the ones printed with landscape scenes, as her material of choice and transforms them into a series of beautiful artworks.

The artist meticulously cuts away the white spaces between patterns before stacking the plates on top of each other to create a stunning 3D relief, almost like layers of lace.  In other works she precision-masks parts of the pattern with glue before sandblasting the rest of the plate.  This wears away the glaze until the underlying clay is revealed, again creating a beautiful relief effect.

This is a labour of love which helps to reconnect us with the artisan and artistic roots of ceramics, even if they are mass manufactured.

Product Inspiration

Layers of colour and texture are great for creating a romantic style design scheme.  Try putting together the Mathilda chair from Moroso with the Kea coffee table from Alki and the Lake rug from Golran

The Link suspension light from LZF casts a beautifully warm glow with its waves of coloured wood veneers.  The Moire wall light from New Works is equally poetic with its movable screens which create changing patterns.  For soft low level lighting try the Vaporetto table light from Moustache, perfect for creating a romantic vibe.

The new collection of ceramic plates from Sena Gu are beautiful and stylish.  We love the Rose plates, available in large and small sizes.  We also like the soft colours of the Barlume set of candleholders and vases from Incipit and the glamorous brass Florida bowl from Ghidini 1961
