Yii, Traditional Craft meets New Design

Posted by rod - 01.06.2010

“The vases in this series are made using traditional Koji pottery and ceramic techniques and decorated with dragons and tigers the classical mascot figures of the Taiwanese temples. These ancient elements are combined with the computer-designed, geometric polygonal shape of the vase’s body.”

“The global Starbucks symbol is combined with traditional Taiwanese crafts such as woodcarving, Koji pottery, glassblowing, and silversmithing. The recognizable shape and circular logo element of the Starbucks cups are integrated with various craft traditions to give each object a unique local character. Creative input by the Taiwanese craftsmen contributed to the decorative details, such as the climbing beetle and flower pattern, of the final design.”

“A refined and emotionally poetic object of intense tactility and visual softness. Oriental embroidery pattern meets Western elegant lace. These bowls express wedding blessing that Chinese mothers give to their daughters. The porcelain’s gradient transparency plays with light that almost penetrates the membrane-like surface which is thinner on the top and thicker on the bottom.”

If you put together 15 Taiwanese designers that work together with 20 master craftsmen, giving them 3 main themes, Inspired by Nature, Cultivation and Sustainability the result is a fantastic combination that fuses together traditional crafts and new design. I especially love the vase. More beautifully crafted objects can be found at Yii. via trendland
