design raw edges – 2010

this is ... Folded

The idea is to reproduce the effect of folded paper on ceramics, an ancient material with so many characters and features, such as the ability to be cast into such unexpected forms and shapes thus it could be elusive and even deceiving. A challenge for Raw-Edges who have already experimented with this very fragile, delicate and thin material. As a visual reference, they were inspired by the old repetitive tile patterns that were very common (and still are) in old apartments in TelAviv from the 50’ and 60’, and which play with color alternation. Raw Edges, original from Israel, have attempted to achieve the repetitiveness and its intrinsic charm through folded lines only.
