Text from design: Vignelli exhibition label:
Colorstone Dinnerware; Sasaki, Japan 1985.
In this set of stoneware, we wanted to expose the nature of the material by wiping out the glaze on the edge of the plates, cups, etc. This gesture provides a decorative finish to the objects as well by contrasting the white line of the thickness with the color of the surface. Collections: Cooper-Hewitt Museum, New York; Die Neue Sammlung, Munich.
