House Editions – Petal Plate (Size Feast)
The chrysanthemum form can be found as far back as the 10th c. Song dynasty in the ceramic history of China. Rejuvenation, intellectual pursuits, loyalty, perfection, and the sun also find meaning in the chrysanthemum. In China, ancient lore tells of a man who became immortal after drinking dew from its petals, while in Japan, the unfolding of the petals symbolizes perfection and the rays of the sun. Although eating from this dish may not result in immortality, indeed it is a flower and a dish to meditate on.
House Editions is a ceramic design and production studio offering select pieces of ‘the refined domestic’, both strong and fragile in their beauty. Bending classic and traditional ceramic processes, their technique straddles the unique and the modular. Handcraft is important as their practice looks to a sensibility built on centuries of culture and an exchange of tacit knowledge.
House Editions continues the porcelain tradition of Jingdezhen to construct a conversation between the preservation and the reinvention of classic motifs, building new relationships between the established and experimental. Their system uses traditional materials and techniques with an edge of contemporaneity, resulting in elevated everyday editions.
