Ceramics inspired by 17th century Dutch Vanitas painting

Ceramicist Tamsin Van Essen has designed a collection of vases inspired by the opulence of 17th century Dutch Vanitas paintings. The collection explores the beauty and the vulnerability of excess and aims to capture the fragile moment when abundance turns to decay. An exuberance of decoration disrupts the vases’ delicate forms, implying deterioration and ruin. Frozen in time just as disintegration begins, the vases hint towards the impermanence of material existence and the inevitable decline of beauty.
