Clam shell formed of white bisque porcelain designed by Ted Muehling
This delicately curved spoon by US designer Ted Muehling shows that a spoon can look completely different. Glazed on the inside and matte bisque on the outside, the puristic shape underlines the delicacy of the multifaceted material. And if you have concerns about use, you can rest assured: It's a bit like slurping oysters.
WHY WE LOVE IT
The mold making studio is the heart of the manufactory. This is where the plaster molds are made for the casting of figures as well as objects that cannot be thrown on the potter's wheel. Manufacturing requires a large degree of know-how and a high level of technical skill. Large and complex Nymphenburg designs must be cast as individual elements and then assembled, retouched and engraved to become the desired whole.
