I have always loved Porcelain art in what ever from it maybe take. I have a growing collection of German pieces that look so good when grouped together. Porcelain has many properties and Ábel Lakatos from Budapest, Hungary has leaned to use these properties to make beautiful and functional art. The Porcelain Chandelier is truly a thing of beauty. The positive for casting was made of glass. It gives a smoother surface and emables fine, geometric shapes. Could you imagine this design on a larger scale? the Polyunomi cup also allows light to shine through certain areas. The clear glaze was only added to the inside allowing a rougher outer exterior. This allows for a more secure grip.
“The primary aim of the design is to stress the transparency of the porcelain and to illustrate the powers working in the kiln during fireing it up to 1300℃ . This bends the individual pieces and makes the series-producable light always different. The fraction of the shape suggests the fragility of the material and the refraction, this results in an unusual tension with which the chandelier attracts attention. Imagine that you stand under an object that “grows” out of the ceiling, but —opposed to usual chandelieres— not vertically directed.”
