Digital Love

for Vista Alegre

2013
Exclusive edition of 30 pieces for Vista Alegre

‘Digital love' is a collection of 30 unique decorative plates.

This project came to be very uncannily. For after spending 3 months in the renowned porcelain factory Vista Alegre, we felt an urge to create something different and unprecedented. That's how we found out that by placing "ready-made" porcelain pieces in the oven at 1400 °C, the glaze of the porcelain melts and glues the pieces together, which results in beautiful sculptural compositions. Many experiences had to be done, however, to find a solution preventing the pieces from breaking inside the oven. In a retro-futuristic spirit, the decoration of the plates was thought to be a composition of lines and reflections, and the pieces hand painted with both GOLDand platinum, leaving us with a collection of elegant objects inspired from the digital world. These pieces are an artistic reinterpretation of the future and what it hides under the beautiful reflections of the past.
