'BEST NEW GIFT' WINNER!

 

Winner of best new gift product at London´s Top Drawer Spring 2012, each of KRASZNAI’s Talqual vases are unique, featuring contrasts in the untreated character of the bare ceramic against bright splashes of coloured glazes coating the inside of each vase. It is this inimitable artisan quality plus excellent craftsmanship that awarded KRASZNAI
the prize at the show last month. The handmade production techniques of these vases make use of the old moulds used for KRASZNAI’s Arms and Crafts collection. The moulds, which become more damaged and imperfect with each use, are what create the unique character of each vase. As Roger, designer and producer, says “All the imperfections are visible in each vase, the mould has it’s own life, a story”. Roger created this collection in the summer of 2011, to show how beauty can be found in imperfect works. His addition of the coloured glazes on the inside of the vases attract attention and bring
the vases to life, in much the same way as some plants and animals do in nature. Each vase features contrasts in textures, colours and the old and new, yet no two vases look, or feel, the same. Whilst looking delicate, the quality of production is evident in every vase. Yet, despite the readily apparent level of care and time that has been put into each piece, the vases are priced affordably, making them popular since their launch at the end of last year. Anyone interested in handmade, unique ceramic works is sure to find beauty in the Talqual vases. And with work already in progress on a new collection for 2012, we can’t wait to see what new interpretations of beauty KRASZNAI will delight us with next.
