Margaret Braun handles porcelain much like the way she handles sugar. As a pioneering cake designer (author of Cakewalk 2001, Rizzoli) who pushed the boundaries of her edible materials, her studio practice reflects the same eye and discipline to create delicately balanced porcelain wares that are formed, glazed, painted, piped and gilded with a confectioner's hand.
Her focus is on line, silhouette and the subtle gestural shifts that reveal the energy and the character of classical forms. This has resulted in a treasure trove of hand-built porcelain objects that live on the precipice of form and function.
This limited edition is made up of original pieces, and curated sets. Within the sets, you will find differences in color, size, surface and posture with select flaws illuminated in gold. Think of them as individuals, with their own stories, but derived from one family.
Margaret invites you to approach these cups, vessels, chalices, any way you’d like: as useful household objects, as decoration, as sculpture, or as individual pieces of tableware to be collected over time.
