Description

“The Shift” is a sculptural vase with a combination of controlled shape and uncontrollable pattern. The circle is a perfect shape, yet constricting in its infinite cyclicalness. While searching for the way out of this constrictedness, I asked myself how to liberate the circle from its own vicious circle and what this will involve. The process involves mold making, marbling clay, and casting. The matte surface is polished. Every marbled piece has different patterns and shades of gray.

About the designer


Raili Keiv

Raili Keiv is a ceramic designer who lives and works in Tallinn, Estonia. She is intrigued by the possibilities included in both ceramics industry and small-scale studio work. She is fascinated by the perfection and efficiency of industry while admiring the errors that keep unintentionally appearing in small-scale pieces produced by hand in her studio. Raili Keiv is captived by the dialogue and conflict that emerges between in these two worlds. The artist works mainly with porcelain and ceramics while often combining these with other materials. She experiments with the boundaries of these materials, yet adhering to the functional aspects of objects such as tableware. She makes conceptual series of works, often continuing with the patterns that she has used in her previous pieces.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
