Porcelaine Moderne was created by French artist and designer Caroline Gazel. Gazel is passionate about sharing her updated version of French ‘art-de-vivre.
Porcelaine Moderne is a handcrafted collection of ceramics that reflects contemporary ways of living such as singledom, slow living and coliving.
The collection incorporates several series which are each aimed at a different area of modern-day life. It includes a series of tableware, bathware, decorative ceramics as well as a line of more artistic inspired objects.
The First series of tableware, Food is Politics, is related to Gazel’s initiative "artistic tools for everyday life". Its goal is to incite users to reflect about the contents of their plate through witty messages, thus encouraging more sustainable food choices.
The second series of tableware, Perfect Size, is inspired by our changing eating habits. Thus, we no longer tend to eat multiple course meals. Nowadays, our meals consist of a salad, a soup, a pasta,… which we eat from a bowl rather than a plate. Perfect Size tableware is tailored to your preferred way to dine: alone, with a friend, your partner or you pet. An added advantage is that it is adapted to modern ways of living since it takes up less space than a traditional china set.
Soap Opera is a quirky bathware collection, designed to solve all your bathroom drama. Remember that time you inadvertently used your roommate’s soap bar? Or that time when your hair was still greasy after showering because you washed it with a regular soap bar instead of your shampoo bar? These situations belong to the past because the Soap Opera bathware was especially designed to identify the owner or function of all your bathroom’s soap bars in a stylish manner
Introduction au Bonheur is a series of original Christmas decorations, reminding us of the most valuable things in life: happiness, kindness and simple pleasures.
The final series in the collection is more artistic and links back to Gazel’s initiative "Artistic tools for everyday Life" as well as her ‘Fairytale Obsession’ project. It contains a series of pleasure objects which symbolize our need for independence as well as the importance of taking care of ourselves.
