The beautiful 'Lightscape' vase was first molded in paper and then handcrafted in white bisque porcelain with a glazed interior. In her designs, Ruth Gurvich aims to show the shapes and structures of everyday things the way they are. Her understanding of design is global in scope, but firmly anchored in local tradition. She established a reputation with her three-dimensional works made of paper, which pursue a delicate, wholly distinctive aesthetic. In her designs, she cannily makes the most of the materiality of paper – as a working material, it enables her to introduce light, movement and vitality into things.
Designed in 2009 by Ruth Gurvich for Nymphenburg.
