A mashup for the dinner table

The guys at ctrlzak in Greece have come up with a ‘mashup’ like no other. The Ceramix project features porcelain from East and West, which by their nature varies greatly in style and colourways. Forcing the two together produces an effect that has me staring like at a train wreck – strangely fascinated.

Ctrlzak puts it this way :

A series of ceramic objects reflecting on the historical production of Chinese and European porcelain and its centuries of cross-fertilisation between Western and Eastern aesthetics. CeramiX Art Collection & CeramiX Design Collection are the results of a lengthy research that has identified the key elements characterising both cultures placing them together in new unique forms.

Sincerely it’s interesting and I highly recommend spending five minutes on the ctrlzak to see their gallery of ceramic mashups.

  1. This gives me a brain meld. The diffusing of two cultures. Very interesting. I’ll take some chinese food on the right, and some scones on the left. Thank you. 🙂
