COLLECTION
I made the pastry (in the photo with the tea) on my new bone china tableware. I have made it since about age 10. Many people who taste it think it is from their country. I used to take it to Lucie Rie when I would visit her. It makes everyone happy. Here, I have put my general version, that I sent to a friend, one of the times I was a guest artist at Togei no Mori, in Shigaraki. When I was at university, I would put it in the freezer and secretly bake it in the test kiln (do not do this it is bad workshop practice) when the teachers were in meetings. They would come back and comment the department smelled wonderful. But,it would all be gone by the time they finished their meetings. I came back after Christmas break one year and Caroline had eaten it all and the freezer was empty. She couldn't stop eating it over the vacation. It even made my very dry teacher Franz Wildenhain smile. He left a meeting for it - he had a good nose.  Making it is similar to making my ceramic work. It is structural. I do serve my edible work  on my work often.  I always make it when I give workshops. So, we will make it at Meridiana for the students in Tuscany who attend my workshop. Since then, I must admit, that as an Inax Design Prize winner, in 1993, in Japan, I did bake a noteworthy chocolate cake (a recipe from Lucie Rie's family that she gave me) in a ceramic dry box in our workshop (not in the company). It took 4 hours but it worked perfectly. (I am not recommending dry boxes or kilns for preparing food in . But,I have a horrible suspicion, all potters do this at some time in their lives with the full knowledge it is idiotic. At the time seems convenient but they know it is really a bad idea). I have worked in companies (in the 20th century - I did not say 21st century) where at 2a.m. I smelled steak and followed the smell and there it was, on the kiln shelf at the end of the tunnel kiln, a thick sirloin steak and onions and baked potato in foil, on aluminum foil, next to a cooling down product.

The recipe is below:

DOROTHY X NIKKO @ HOTERES 2018






































NIKKO PR MATERIAL FOR HOTERES 2018


Dorothy Feibleman × NIKKO
私がNIKKOと出会ったのは、あるクライアントから私の透光性のある練り込み作品を大量生産の食器として制作できないかと依頼され、その方法を模索していた時でした。
そして、NIKKOとのコラボレーションにより、私の練り込み表現を美しく楽しいだけではなく人間工学的にも使いやすい食器として生産することに成功しました。
透光性のある白地に白、そして色付きの練り込み技法は私のライフストーリーと言えます。通常はコレクターや美術館向けの一点ものである私の作品が、NIKKO “made in Japan”のボーンチャイナ製の食器として誕生したことで、より多くの皆様に私の表現する世界を手に取って楽しんで頂けると思います。

Profile
ドロシー・ファイブルマンは彼女の象徴と言える透光性のある白地に白の練り込み技法を使った陶磁器作品で知られる国際的に活躍するアーティストです。1969年以降、カラー粘土を使った練り込み陶磁器の草分け的アーティストとして活躍。1995年以降は透光性のある白地に白の練り込み陶磁器作品で国際的に広く名を知られるようになる。日本国内にも工房を持ち、日本でも長年に渡り制作活動を続けている。彼女の作品はニューヨークのメトロポリタン美術館、ロンドンのヴィクトリア&アルバート博物館、豊岡市立美術館伊藤清永記念館(兵庫県)、岐阜県現代陶芸美術館をはじめ、数々の美術館に収蔵されている。


Dorothy x NIKKO
I met NIKKO when I was asked to design and make my translucent white/white and colored nerikomi expression into tableware.
Our challenge was to achieve the image of my white/white translucent nerikomi expression in a new way. Our collaboration has achieved this for the first time. It is beautiful, desirable, enjoyable and ergonomically comfortable to use.
The history of translucent white/white and colored nerikomi is basically my life story. My work is usually one-off pieces for collectors and Museums. Now my expression is being applied in another way to bone china produced by Nikko. 
More people can touch and enjoy my expression, courtesy of NIKKO “Made in Japan”.
