Colour Traces

RENS X COR UNUM

Colourful graphic wall objects based on the original

idea and colour process of Reddish. RENS applied the

absorbing qualities of ceramics to transform

conventional plates into these series of unique artworks.

After placing objects in liquid pigment, the colourant soaks into the material, draws a pattern and leaves traces. Over the course of time, the material gradually paints itself – tinted by the interplay of clay, dye and glaze.

 

The porosity of the material and the dye duration determine the outcome, void of any human intervention. However, the powerful alliance between two colours - one of transparent glaze and one a colourful shade of ink - is expertly arranged by the designers. Each item is unique, the collection is limited and numbered. Check our current stock for availability.

RENS X COR UNUM CERAMICS

 

The ceramic experts of Cor Unum and RENS have maintained a broad and fruitful collaboration for years. Their cross-pollination started in 2013 with an extensive exploration into the use of red in ceramics, a challenging colour in porcelain and earthenware.

 

This colour and material research gave birth to the joint collection Reddish, for which RENS devised and developed a unique colouring process, leading to a series of beautiful collaborations, including Colour Traces, Table Top, Colour Tubes, Unfoiled Vases, and Re-glow.

 

‘RENS was the first with whom we started a material research. For us, the collaboration was a great way to gain new insights – and a starting point for many new collaborations with other designers.’

— Lotte Landsheer, Director, Cor Unum Ceramics
