Franco-Finnish ceramicist and designer Nathalie Lautenbacher (b. 1974) has been creating tableware collections renowned for their delicate colour, subtle form and strong personal touch since 1999. Each year brings new additions to the ceramics family, with each unique object diligently created by pouring coloured porcelain into a plaster mold. In recent years, Lautenbacher has not only created ceramics to be put on tables, but also on walls and floors. Besides functional items, she creates large pots, wall art and ceramic installations in collaboration with the designer Naoto Niidome. Ceramic is combined with other carefully selected materials, such as textile, aluminium, wood, or plaster.

”There’s something very satisfying and addictive about working with clay. The slowness of it makes time stop, but you still feel as if you’re keeping up with life. It’s a material that gives you a firm hold of the world.

Tableware is much more than just platters or containers for food. I think it adds comfort to everyday life. An archetypal bowl or cup, even if it’s an age-old functional item, tells a story of something bigger — about sharing or stowing. That’s why making one remains interesting from one year to another.”
