B/V Bowl, 1988

This is a Bowl. It is dated 1988 and we acquired it in 1989. Its medium is cast polyester resin, glazed porcelain. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Bart Guldemond and Vincent de Rijk worked together, experimenting with new techniques in bonding various materials to ceramics. They eventually succeeded in enveloping a ceramic bowl with polyester resin. The contrast in materials is heightened by the use of complementary colors.

It is credited Museum purchase from Decorative Arts Association Acquisition Fund.
