“Artistically crafted porcelain is still a young and uncharted genre,” says Claudia Biehne. The possibilities that it offers a designer in our day and age as a material to work with are almost inexhaustible. Biehne explores this new cosmos with a lot of keenness to experiment and the courage to transcend boundaries. This designer also attaches high importance to always approaching this challenging material in a fresh and intuitive manner, something which results in very contrasting creations. While the pieces of her Lumos group look extremely delicate, her Vulcanoids have a rather solid appearance, and can often be moved around only by using considerable physical strength. Adopting the basic shape of a bowl, her lighting objects transmute this everyday item into something new intended to release sensitive energies in the beholder.
