Change in thinking
Hannes Wettstein († 2008) described the collection as follows: According to ceramic tradition, a wash basin is a bowl, a depression in a horizontal surface which catches water. Marike® turns this construction principle upside down an designs a basin which strives for one level. Paper thin wall surfaces rise like a thin membrane from horizontal plane and carry the water up with them. Plateau and wash basin merge completely with one another. The elegant vessel construction with curved walls on both sides would almost seem to defy rationality. It is based on a careful observation and great respect of the element water and follows a principle of ecological sustainability in the sensitive way it deals with this valuable resource.
