DESCRIPTION

Year of Creation: 2002


In the 18th century it was considered bad form to use fresh flowers as table decorations. After all, they could wilt. This led to the presentation of fabulous, colorful bouquets primarily on plates, cups and terrines. With them, insects and butterflies also found their way onto porcelain, as shown by the royal “Cumberland” service with its many butterflies. The American designer Ted Muehling selected some of the most interesting insects and applied them to his collection of plates and trinket boxes as an eye-catching feature.

New York based, Muehling has been designing a variety of collections and objects for Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg since 1999. "I try to restrict my vocabulary of shape by abstracting forms from nature and transforming them with the aim of creating objects that function just as well as they look. My designs trace the invisible shapes that exist between nature and our perception of it." 

Today Ted Muehling's work may be found in numerous private and public collections.
