Description

The “Caduceus” vessel is made by scans of the eponymous symbol found on the lamp poles alongside the Thames Embankment. The top part is made by slip casted porcelain that was later scanned and printed in order to create the base part.

The piece is part of the “Chimeras of a High Tide”, a collection of artifacts created using traditional ceramic techniques and rapid prototyping mediums, leading to a result where the original can be hardly distinguished from its reproduction.

”The project started from my walks around the city of London, where with the eyes of a foreigner, I developed a particular fascination with the ornate Elements of Victorian mass-produced furniture. As a Greek person, I am used to living amongst the ruins of past grandeur, so I was intrigued by the paradox of the Victoriana, where the latest means of industrial production were expressed through revivalism.”

Do not expose to high temperatures.

About Natalia Triantafylli Visit Showroom →

Natalia Triantafylli is a Greek designer and maker based in London. She holds an MA from the Royal College of Art in Design Products (class of 2021), where she was awarded with a full scholarship by the Burberry Design Foundation. With a background in design and ceramics her work is characterized by an animistic perspective towards 'things'. She explores schemas such as luxury, fetish and wonder for their power to create gateways to imaginary worlds. She uses these constructions to point to the rarity of the mundane, concluding that there is no need for a new reality but for a fresh pair of eyes.
