Porcelain tableware manufacturer Bernardaud is celebrating its 150-year anniversary with an emphasis on the world of creators. The celebratory collection, which includes collaborations with contemporary artists such as Sophie Calle, David Lynch, Michael Lin, and Julian Schnabel, features an array of palatable plate-ware, some witty, others decorative, but all likely to turn up table talk.
Calle’s “The Pig” uses text to tell the story of a woman who attends a dinner party with a man, only to be told later, upon refusing a kiss, that he doesn’t want to kiss her anyway because she eats like a pig. Lin’s floral aesthetic remains prominent, with large white and pink flowers covering each plate. Featured artist Schnabel continues his work with plates, this time not in large-scale paintings but with emotive scenes of holy architecture with “Ogni Angelo Ha Il Suo Lato Spaventoso” (Every Angel Has its Terrible Side) hand-written over several dishes.
Bernardaud celebrated the opening of its new Chelsea boutique in New York last week, where the collections are for sale and on display.
