A table set in white Bone China porcelain designed by the artist and designer Xie Dong who has revisited, in a poetic way, the workmanship of traditional Chinese ceramics. The porcelain is processed to obtain a very thin thickness: extremely fine, resembling a sheet of paper. Complex technical processes allow the porcelain to take on magical and changing forms: it folds, rolls, sways, creases, curves, turns … The glossy, pure white surface plays with the effects of movement and reacts to light as a living form. Each piece in this collection is unique and authentic, produced by hand and signed by the artist who wanted to translate into poetry what is a profound craftsmanship.
