In this ceramics and glass project a tableware set based on a interpretation of ‘good food’ was created. The interpretation was strongly connected to warmth and comfort. Atmosphere and mood mostly influence dining experience. Generally hot soups and drinks create a feeling of wellbeing, comforting body and soul.
Maku stands for ‘to wrap’ in Japanese and ‘flavour’ in Finnish. It is a series of ceramics and glass, inspired by the way people hold and touch tableware in different cultures. Consisting of different sized bowls and glasses, each piece can have a colourful textile wrapping. This supports the placement of the object in the hand as well as the insulation of the heat. The textiles surrounding the objects can be left aside when having cold drinks.
Exhibited at Anton & Anton, Helsinki (FIN), and DMY, Berlin (GER)
