‘Folded vase’ is designed with the flower bouquet in mind and has been inspired by the Japanese paper-folding art, Origami. Both the matt surface of the porcelain and the way it has been folded and shaped bear resemblance to the texture and porosity of paper. Amanda Betz works in the cross field between art, design, and architecture. Her core interest lies with light, space, and the span between 2 and 3 dimensions. Her design tends to reflect architecture – as fragments of buildings. And she has gained both local and international acclaim for her ability to capture complexity in a simple object.
