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.
Silent Brass and Illusion | New collections designed by Stefanie Hering for Hering Berlin
Real innovations: with four new decorations, Berlin-based porcelain designer Stefanie Hering is once again exploring the limits of what is possible when it comes to materials and glazes. At the same time, Hering also remains true to herself: once again, she has developed innovative processes through elaborate experimental procedures – in this case, in the areas of glaze and decoration applications. These are so elaborate that they can only be produced by hand in the Hering Berlin master workshops in Reichenbach – and result in objects that are each absolutely unique. All the new decorations are available on a selection of existing shapes and make a targeted addition to selected Hering Berlin collections, with which they can be combined as desired according to the "mix and match" principle.
The new decorations in detail:
It looks as if liquid metal has just been poured over plates and bowls. But the secret behind the vibrantly iridescent brass colour of the Silent Brass decoration is an innovative glaze made with ground basalt, which flows in a distinct pattern over each object, making it a truly unique piece. The exquisite colour was conceived as a counterpoint to the Piqueur decoration, but also perfectly complements pieces from the Polite Gold and Polite Platin collection.
Silent Brass Gold
What a contrast! On the outside, the slightly rough look and feel of dazzling white bisque porcelain. On the inside, the liquescent, metallic smoothness of the Silent Brass glaze, with its deliberately uneven flow. In between, a precisely drawn gold strip connecting these opposite poles. Silent Brass Gold enhances the effect of the innovative Silent Brass decoration and can also be attractively combined with other Hering Berlin decorations.
Silent Brass Platinum
Metal and porcelain: the interplay of haptic contrasts, metallic colours, and textures reaches its apex in this decoration. An opaque platinum ring accentuates the dividing line between the glaze and the delicate bisque porcelain and focuses the eye on the apparent movement in the transparent, brass-coloured Silent Brass glaze.
Points of light dancing over a surface: at Hering Berlin, this effect exists not only when light shines onto plates or tables through the hand-cut holes in the Cielo collection, but also as a decorative motif. Illusion conjures up this interplay of light and shadow with a partially dissolving decoration directly on the porcelain. Objects with this motif not only make great stand-alone pieces, but also serve as an ideal complement to parts of a service with the Cielo decoration.
