I’ll be making a trip for both business and pleasure to Copenhagen in the next few weeks. As usual, I’ll be looking for some inspiration in the design and art fields, so what better way to enjoy the city than searching for stripped back, minimalist design. My search for interesting craftsmen and makers led me on to the work of Ditte Fischer, a lady who has been designing and manufacturing everyday pieces of porcelain at her workshop in Copenhagen.
The Nordic simplicity that I mentioned above is one thing that drew me towards the work, but I also had an affinity with the shapes and forms that she’s been able to produce. Not only are the silhouettes thin and structured, they’re also in a mixture of subtle colours that are understated and a pleasure to revolve around.
To get such repetition Ditte decided to use moulds and pour the porcelain in to them. For such forms it’s generally a good idea, especially the boat vessels that she’s so well-known for (seen above). I hope you like this small selection and will go on to explore more on her website below. I’ll certainly be checking out the physical store when I visit in a few weeks time.
