Like most of you, I get crazed, borderline obsessed, with certain objects for the home and those things are all I that I see and think about. That's a big reason why I began this blog in the first place, to document my obsessions. For instance, I'm currently hooked on ceramics and cutlery that have a unique vibe to them that are also functional for daily use because I don't want ceramics as only art, but to be practical too. I've recently discovered German studio KULOR, by ceramicist Sabrina Kuhn based out of Karlsruhe, on Instagram and thought I'd write about her work today because it deserves to be placed before your very curious eyes. Just look at these pieces of beauty...
Clearly inspired by Danish design, these vessels are not only pretty but the patterns, shapes and color palette has my heart. I'd love to mix in a little cherry red and some copper - perhaps put them on a copper tray and incorporate red in a small way, perhaps a few red poppies in a vase? I love unexpected color mixes! I find ceramics so pleasurable to both use and admire, they are one of those things that are functional but can also double as display objects to admire through the cabinet doors or stacked on a shelf, so they perform double duty in that sense.
She recently showed her collection at a German fair (see above photo) and all I can say is that I hope she comes to Hannover this Christmas to set up a booth at Designachten because I'll be all over it and I can see people here really loving her work too.
A bit of her bio, "Sabrina Kuhn is a ceramic and product designer based in Germany. During her studies in Karlsruhe and Copenhagen she developed her interest in ceramics and in particular in porcelain to a veritable passion. In 2013 she founded her ceramic label KULØR under which she produces handmade porcelain. She loves creating objects that please the senses.... And she is interested in all kind of things that beautify, improve or change our everyday life."
Gorgeous - must get some of these!
