Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
The aim of this set is to keep boiled eggs warm, while served in a guesthouse or a hotel. The stackable egg holders are also lids of each other which makes the set economical, saves space, and that is how it keeps the eggs warm. When serving, place 2 or 3 egg holders on each other so that the eggs are already in them. The top egg is protected by a glass lid, which should be placed on the next whenever the holder is removed. This way, for a long time, it is possible to provide warm eggs for guests arriving later. Main design aspects Porcelain and glass are poor thermal conductors. A lid intensify the thermal storage. Eggs of any size fit in the lying recess. Every egg holder has a separate unit for storing eggshells. It can be lifted with one hand, as the diameter is just as small as the span of a small hand. Economical, because only one lid is enough for a set. Stackable containers are space-saving and easy to move. There are no negative edges and corners that make dishwashing difficult. The transparent lid shows the function.
Casted semi-porcelain, transparent glazed, fired in electric kiln at 1250°C. Smelted clear glass.
