Traditional Delftware features intricate decoration that requires years of training to achieve — but for his “BLAUW” series, Tim Vanlier threw such painstaking pottery conventions overboard and spent eight months experimenting with new methods to shape, paint and bake. What if you take a tiny detail from a 17th-century plate, enlarge and abstract it, he wondered? Or if you apply waste water instead of paint to create a new color gradient? And what happens when you use a sandblaster to produce special effects? The answers to these explorations, and others, are found in “BLAUW,” a playful collection of porcelain bowls that can be built into a vase, offering a refreshing take on the tradition of stackable tulip vases. These hand-painted samples were created during Vanlier’s research into the traditional Delfts blue.

Profile Photo
Studio Tim Vanlier
Tim Vanlier founded his design studio in 2016, the same year he graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2015, he won the 3rd prize in the Cor Unum design competition, and was also declared a winner of the Matter or Stuff Designer Competition 2016 in Montalcino, Italy. From his atelier in Eindhoven, Vanlier develops and produces both self-initiated and commissioned projects. The foundation for all his works is an emphasis on raw materials and the use of pure production techniques. Inspired by different manufacturing possibilities, Vanlier learned to improve everyday objects with his designs, which are characterized by their clean, organic and graphic forms. Often,he employs stratification to bring depth and unexpected possibilities to his materials; working in an experimental way opens up numerous possibilities, so he can create products that reach beyond the limitations of his recycled materials.
