Can you say something about yourself and your collaboration?
We are both ceramists. We both share a delight in materials, the enthusiasm for good design, the creative process that drives us both.
kaas+heger is company, founded in 2016 with the idea of bringing together our know-how and our pleasure in working with stoneware and developing a joint ceramic collection. And now, the first jointly designed product line has been brought about.
What does good ceramic design mean to you?
Clear design idiom, good usability, highest quality, sensual materiality, convincing aesthetics. No-frills products whose functionality is as variable as possible. To achieve a lot with little, no abundance, no waste of energy.
How are your ceramics created?
The development process is dialogical and experimental. Our designs are not computer-made. The ideas are directly formed and developed with the material.
The production is pure craftsmanship. Each vessel is thrown on the wheel and therefore unique.
