Elemental Vessels

Between utility and contemplation: an alternate modernist narrative

Ceramic vessels have played only a minor part in the history of modern architecture – but there is a similar focus on form, with a “pursuit” similar to many buildings of the early twentieth century. Much more than just an unornamented expression of massindustrial society, there is an exploration of elementary space in sensual experience.
