‘BROKEN CROCKERY BRINGS YOU LUCK’  TABLEWARE by HELDER

A German proverb says that breaking an object of glass or porcelain supposedly predicts that certain things will develop positively in their lives.

‘Broken Crockery brings you Luck’ is a numbered series of pottery and tableware prototypes, where broken porcelain and recycled glassware are combined to restore and renew the original function of the lost object.
The series is a research on true value and function of objects and is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi and kintsugi, an embracing of the flawed or damaged. Repairs and imperfections are emphasized, rather than allowing its service to end at the time of its damage or breakage.
We also ask ourselves how we can design and create products without promoting excessive consumption at the same time. The recycling and revision of existing materials and objects are creative strategies to reflect on social conventions.
The series is continued in numbered edition.
