Sholten & Baijing

Scholten & Baijing

Scholten & Baijing are working together since 2000. Scholten studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Baijings is self-educated. After the realisation of several projects in which they feel out the bounds between autonomous and applied work, in their new work there is more emphasize on design within the interior. Meanwhile they built up a relationship with different clients like Van Esch and Gelderland. Parts of their work are included in the regular collections of Centraal Museum Utrecht, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam en Nederlands Textiel Museum Tilburg.

Colour porcelain:
Based on extensive research on Arita ceramics and a analysis of historical local masterpieces, Scholten & Baijings created a series named colour porcelain. Typical Japanese colours, such as aquarelle-blue, light green, red-orange and ochre, are recontextualised and applied in new combinations on a set of contemporary, high functional tableware that in its entirety still reflect the typical Arita colour spectrum.

Layered colour compositions are carried out in various textures and shades of glaze and are combined with the natural white of the porcelain itself. Made with a delicate sense for local crafts and industry, colour porcelain shows an original European perspective on Japanese tradition
