Studio Glithero, the Anglo‐Dutch design studio of Sarah van Gameren and Tim Simpson, are preparing to present a new collection entitled 'Blueware'.
The collection consists of four products - round vases, slim vases, light-shades and some particularly lovely blueprinted tiles - which will be shown with the support of the Vauxhall Collective at 'The Garage' in the Brompton Design District, London, from the 20th - 29th of May.
The pieces will be presented alongside Galleria Nilufar's unique collection of historic Gio Ponti furniture.
Blueprinting is an early photographic technique that is most commonly known as a way to make copies of architectural plans. Studio Glithero have created a process that develops ceramics like photographs, by infusing them with light sensitive chemicals and then exposing them to ultra violet light
Having collected their plant specimens, (the humble and prettily delicate weeds of inner London borough pavements) Studio Glithero pressed, dried and attached them to the surface of the ceramics.
The objects were then exposed under UV light, which transforms them from white to intense Prussian blue.
What remains is the silhouette of the specimen. And a very nice collection of ceramics indeed.
