The Dutch designer Dik Scheepers realised this rough yet beautiful pieces of porcelain tableware as his graduation project at Academie Beeldende Kunsten Maastricht.

Instead of creating a perfect smooth mould Dik uses modular forms which enable him to interchange the segments and build a variety of shapes.

“I do not think it is necessary to make the perfect mold. I accept the mistakes, which are normally not wanted.These mistakes become a characteristic of the product and tell a lot about it’s processing. They make the product even more beautiful”, the designer explains.
