Period & Style
Jason Miller is a unconventional product designer whose work involves may different materials and techniques, ranging from wood, glass and metal to duct tape and even live mushrooms. It is his work in ceramics, particular his Seconds series that is featured in the exhibition Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics. In this series, Jason has created 'broken' table settings that bring together seemingly disparate patterns. Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics is devoted to creative collaborations between contemporary designers and some of the world's oldest porcelain manfucturers. The exhibition is an international survey of how more than 50 artists and industrial designers are reviving an interest in and re-imagining the possibilities of this ancient medium in the 21st century. Unique collaborations between artists and long-established manufacturers are explored, like the pairing of Ted Muehling with Nymphemburg Porcelain and Patricia Urquiloa with Rosenthal AG. Both and functional and conceptual works are highlighted, along with important technological advances in ceramic material that allow for its use in electronic appliances, cutting implements, and other surprising products.
