I like porcelain and animals, but I think most of us do! today I just want to share some nice works in this field. These beetles are made by the two German artists Beate Reinheimer and Ulrike Rehm, known under the name RaR- esthablished in 2010. All of these porcelain beetles are each couleured and glazed with a different effect and are actually wall.mounted vases that measure between 29 and 37cm in length. The collection is made for Thomas Eyck, a wonderful dutch publisher and distributer of characteristic and exclusive contemporary design products.
Keywords in the philosophy off his company are: care, attention and love for material, technique and design.
Thomas Eyck works together with designers of his own choice. In his view the union of design and material, and a careful process of product development from the first idea until the `finishing touch´ are very important. The collection of Thomas Eyck will develop slowly by commissioning one carefully chosen designer to design a series of products each year. Material and techniques will be chosen with the utmost care, and the company will only cooperate with the best craftsmen and producers. In this way limited series of products in different materials will be created.
