|The plate is plain white, with two gold bands and a gold rim. Simple and delicate.
I’m a typographer and the plate is part of an ongoing research I’m doing about how writing and images are used on tableware. It started when i continuously had to look at the ikea logo at the the cheap glasses in my studio after finishing a drink. Then i realized that there is on almost everything a logo, typography, images that subtle but constant deliver information.
Decorations and emblems are put by men on tableware to tell a story and to represent towards vistors. Mostly the images, emblems and writings on ceramics deliver a nostalgic, sentimental, misty-eyed version of what they represent. With this work I imagined a world were the objects would tell to the visitors, what they know and witnessed about the owners. In this case the plate tells the visitor that they(the owner) don’t care that she or he’s a vegetarian.
In other works I’m trying to put (at that time revolutionary) quotes from philosophers on plates from that time. In order to research how these plates would react with the content – and in most cases also the other way around the content react with the form. The plate is an original, signed and dated (2010) on the back. The plate is probably fourty to fifty years old.
