TRAUTWEIN, HERING & GRAY
An exhibition organised by Sella Berlin for Designweek, works by Stefanie Hering are now being shown in context with designs by Gray and colour concepts by Trautwein.
Handmade Porcelain - unique, noble and absolutely contemporary
Designer and Entrepreneur
Working with porcelain and clay is at the heart of designer Stefanie Hering's philosophy. Herself a trained ceramicist with a master craftsman's certificate, she founded the Hering Berlin manufactory as an entrepreneur.
There, she is responsible for all collections as a designer. She works closely with the traditional Reichenbach manufactory in Thuringia for the development and production of all pieces. She instructs the master craftspeople there and experiments with them on innovative shapes, glazes, and decorations.
This process results in unique porcelain objects that delight design aficionados all over the world, as well as connoisseurs and top chefs – for example because of the intense, iridescent effect of the mineral glazes developed through numerous experiments. Or because of the abstract yet at the same time floral-looking “PalmHouse X” decoration.
As an artist, Stefanie Hering also develops sensational objects that are unparalleled worldwide. For example, for the “Din Clay Ton” project in Ratchaburi, Thailand, person-sized vases and vessels were created from the particularly stable local clay, which were then displayed in a spectacular exhibition tour of the Goethe-Institut.
This project attracted as much international attention as her tableware collections, for which Stefanie Hering received the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Dineus Award, and the International Tableware Award, among others.
