" Translucency "
70mm x 138mm
„Translucency" is a series of porcelain lamps, made by Lotte Schloer.
The translucent lamps follow a layering technique with Mont Blanc Porcelain she developed at Burg Giebichenstein.
The idea was to create a lamp that would be clean and white on the outside;
only with the light turned on its real decor could be seen.
In the process,
Lotte Schloer first pours a white porcelain layer for the outside
and then adds multiple thicker and thinner layers inside its white cover.
Color and thickness of the layers shapes the final appearance of a lamp.
The here presented pieces come from a series with plain and colored porcelain;
with lights turned off, "Translucency" seems to be quite ordinary; with lights turned on, it transforms into a colorful surprise.
Lotte Schloer is a 1993 born German porcelain designer from Munich.
She started workling with porcelain during her apprenticeship
at the reknown porcelain manufactury Nymphenburg in Munich, Bavaria.
Here, she was trained as a professional porcelain painter for ancient and contemporary decors.
After three years of intensive training, she started studying industrial design
with focus on ceramics and glass at Burg Giebichenstein University of Arts and Design, Halle, Germany.
Pursuing her passion for porcelain, the "White Gold", she enhanced her previous 2D painting and glancing skills with modeling, conceptualizing, and selling complex 3D-forms.
Her work is influenced by frequent international exchange (trips to Russia, Austria, France, etc.)
as well as an international semester at Saga University, Arita, Japan.
Inspired by the local history and differences in society, Lotte Schlör seeks to find functional enhancements
to the traditional use of porcelain as dishes, vases, and interior design elements.
Passionate about porcelain, she is always looking for contemporary approaches
to one of the most fascinating materials in industrial design.
