A one time member of DROOG - Hella Jongerius - her design and particularly ceramic pieces are truly the work of a master and genius - I do not use that word lightly! When you see something that is both chaotic and sublime - that’s when you know you have pure greatness!
I first saw her early vases and ceramic/sewn pottery pieces in Moss/SoHo/NYC and then at the Design Museum/London
It was totally fresh and inspiring to see them back then and they still are so with time they have become classic pieces.
Hella’s work is brilliant, highly skilled and I think borders on Art.
Her Nymphenburg Sketches are my favourite…so far!
