pili wu: plastic ceramic tableware

teapot from ‘plastic ceramics tabletop’ series by pili wu

 

 

 

drawing much of his design influences from living in taiwan, designer pili wu explores the traditional crafts and objects of his homeland. employing porcelain as his medium in the ‘plastic ceramics tabletop’ series of serving ware, wu uses the eggshell porcelain or bodiless chinaware technique developed during the chinese song dynasty in which he produces incredibly thin objects rendering patterns which can be seen through the translucent walls of each piece. the familiar forms and ribbing evidenced in the tabletop collection are adapted from disposable plastic wares which are used in many taiwanese roadside restaurants. with this the designer applies a delicate and ancient craft in our contemporary context.’plastic ceramics tabletop’ consists of a fruit bowl, teapot and three cups and was produced in collaboration with artisan tsun-jen lee.
