Ceramic Experiments by Dimitri Bähler
Ceramics are not the same as they were before this century. The new design by Dimitri Bahler takes the whole ceramic concept to another level altogether. The designs constitute of subtle colours and eye-catching designs. These sets of ceramics are termed as ‘VPT&C’: ‘Volumes, Patterns, Textures & Colors’ and they include a set of vases, plinths and other abstract artifacts. The whole VPT&C started off in 2015 when the Swiss designer Dimitri Bahler was invited to develop his ceramic experimentation at CERCCO workspace, the Experimentation and Research Center for Contemporary Ceramics of the Geneva University of Art and Design. He has been challenging his own designs by playing with the ceramic volume and texture. After a lot of experimentation, his research went into three procedures: digital, manual (wood carving tools) and natural (the glaze itself makes textures).
Through the whole procedure, out came a different variety of ceramics with different patterns, textures, colors and designs. The VPT&C ceramics can be used for both decorative and utility purposes as vases, pedestals, fruit bowls. Altogether his collection is a mixture of minimalism and functionality.
And... That's it!
