Latitude for Uniqueness Series

It was designed by Kirstie Van Noort. It is dated 2014-ongoing. Its medium is tableware, research samples. It is a part of the department.

Porcelain is a kaolin-based ceramic celebrated for its fragile yet hard surface and iconic, milky color, ideally suited for painted decoration. Embracing the clay that is typically discarded in traditional porcelain-making processes, Kirstie Van Noort’s line of porcelain tableware is distinguished by darker hues, challenging the historic emphasis on the material’s light color while minimizing waste.
