Pottery by Vincent Van Duysen
Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen's collection of Pottery epitomises his spare aesthetic, use of natural materials and subtle colour. Powerful though each piece is in isolation, the collection is conceived as an entity: an evocation of the shelves of stacked vessels in a potter's studio. Read as a series, the differences of scale and colour create powerful rhythms and modulations expressed in the subtle but intense palette of a northern European sky.
Each piece is composed of two elements: an earthenware container and a wooden plate. Whilst the angle of the curve and the smooth profile of each pot are fixed, the diameter and the height of the vessels vary. These shifts in scale determining whether the container framed is a bowl or a platter. The thickness of the wooden plate which serves as both cover and plinth is also variable.
