wOrk stone cup necklaces: nature as a source of inspiration
Rivers erode rocks and give stones beautiful shades of grey. The shapes of stones are the base of the Stone cup necklaces. The shades of grey find application in the color of the skin of the porcelain. Tree rings tell the age of a tree, the same tree rings are the basis of the application of colors in layers in the pendants of the wOrk Stonecup necklaces. Unique pendants in five different colors. The stone cup necklaces come with a leather necklace (cm) and in a matching box.
wOrk – where east meets west
At the invitation of designer Zhu Xiaojie (CN), Olav Slingerland (NL) left in 2015 to China to work together in Xiaojie's ceramics studio. Their joint research into the language of clay, in which they shared their love for the material, nature, and the essence of good design shared, culminated in a cultural cross-pollination, which forms the basis of the brand wOrk and which is expressed in a distinctive design style. The pure and honest material in a bright and contemporary design, that is at the heart of wOrk.
wOrk requires craftmanship
All wOrk products are hand-made by craftsmen. Each object is established by cooperation of designer and maker, an absolute requirement if you are working with layers of colored porcelain and if you are committed to the quality of wOrk. Porcelain clay requires a precise and intensive way of working, which stands or falls with good workmanship. The layers of colored porcelain show clearly visible how the products are made.
Dutch designer Olav Slingerland
Olav Slingerland studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he experienced his introduction to the ceramic process. During his education, he became more and more excited about the casting of clay. Olav has translated his fascination in a whole range of special designs – from Pisovase to Puntbowl and Flow and Still vases and bowls to the Homework series. The cooperation with Zhu Xiaojie has led to a whole new set of more detailed designs under the umbrella of their joint brand wOrk.
