Hella Jongerius’s Unique vases

Dutch designer Hella Jongerius worked with one of the oldest factories in the Netherlands Royal Tichelaar Makkum to create a special collection of 300 unique vases. As the film below says, this is more about “creating than designing”. The decisions made to experiment with glazes and finishing are a happy accident and leave a literal fingerprint on the vase which shows the process of creating from beginning to finish.
