Moss Online Porcelain Design
Marcel Wanders designed this piece as part of an experimental project initiated by Rosenthal for the Dutch foundation Droog Design. The sponge pieces are created by dipping a sponge form into fluid porcelain clay. After drying, the piece is fired in an oven where the sponge burns away leaving only the porcelain in its place. In this way porcelain products can be made without a mold. The form of the egg vase was derived from stuffing latex condoms with hard-boiled eggs.
