the Red White Vase by hella jongerius has become a modern classic. Together with the Big White Pot these two vessels are casted from the moulds of restored medieval pots. The rough casting seams, along with the potter’s traditional thumbprint, give the impression of antique vessels. while the strong, solid forms are a clear indications of modern industry. a reinterpretation of history & craft versus industry. in 1997, a bright red colour could no longer be used in ceramic glazes as the paint contains cadmium, which is toxic. this was one of the reasons behind the use of indu­strial spraypaint as an alternative.
