THE COLLABORATION

In Spring 2015, Kia Pedersen and Tzelan sought to enhance products for everyday living by tying the whimsical and gestural spirit of Kia's artwork onto new, unexpected medium. To mark the start of this ongoing creative collaboration, the Kia Plates––a collection of porcelain tableware inspired by Kia's series of three self-portraits entitled Tar on Copper Portraits––was debuted. To learn more about Kia Pedersen, read our exclusive interview with the artist here...

THE DESIGN

Kia's greatest artistic influence has been the inspired, delicate dance of wind on the water, which she translates into gestural pieces of art that combine experimental materials and texture with sharp, dramatic relief. Tar on Copper Portraits is an original Kia Pedersen work, which was studied in-depth for graphic analysis and composition. The resulting imagery was optimized and transferred onto round porcelain coupe plates in brilliant blue, white and platinum––a nod to traditional blue and white China motifs.

QUALITY CRAFTMANSHIP

Kia's artwork was transferred onto porcelain using the decal printing process. It's colors were hand mixed and screen-printed with precision as water-soluble adhesive designs on water-resistant paper. Later, the designs were water-dipped and hand-applied to the porcelain.
