DIALOG - The vase collection Dialog is about different material expressions in an archetypal form. The series consists of three variations on the same shape in three sizes. The designer is fascinated by how method and material shape a product; the time it takes to make the product and the conversation that occurs between form, method and material.

The vases are designed in such a way that the reproduction of the shape will be different for each chosen method and material. The smallest vase is cast. Casting gives an exact reproduction of the shape as it is drawn. The middle vase is blown glass. Mouth-blown glass cannot reproduce the tight shape as well, so this product will have a softer line. The largest vase is pressed out of plastic, slightly coarse clay and has a rougher expression. This gives each product a distinctive expression.
