    Ok, this one totally takes the cake in the jaw-dropping department. Porcelain clothes by Chinese artist Li Xiaofeng. Holy crap, it’s amazing!

     

    New York Delft 2007. Lovegrove & Repucci. Porcelain graffiti dinnerware set. Awesome! And you can buy them here if you like.

     

    By now, you should be quite aware that I’m completely turned on by traditional materials and objects used in non-traditional ways.

    Here’s a little tribute to the art of porcelain which has come a long way since the days of traditional bone china.

    I’m sure you’ll agree.

    Electric Mavis luminaries – recycled fine porcelain and bone china tea cups & saucers by Gregory Bonasera. Available in Australia via these stockists.

     

    They look like plastic, but plastic they ain’t! Nine unique porcelain reproductions of different styles of mono-block resin chairs. The chairs were made by crafts people at the Jiao Zhi studio in Xiamen, China, completely by hand, no moulds were taken from the originals. More info right here.

     

    Eastern tradition meets Western aesthetics in CeramiX’s design collection of Chinese and European porcelain.
