Anna Badur's Aqua Collection is a range of porcelain platters, each featuring a pure and subtle color combinations. Overlapping pigments in fine-tuned shades draw continuously new patterns on each of the platters, which are fired at 1400°C. This is an open edition design, but the handmade process ensures each piece is one-of-a-kind; patterns and intensity of color varies from piece to piece. The Aqua Platter measures 31 cm in diameter and is offered in the following palettes: Desert, Wetland, Fjord, Reef, Steppe, and Heathland.
Berlin-based designer, Anna Badur grew up in East Frisia on the North Sea in Germany, and her work reveals a deep engagement with the sea, nature, and weather phenomena. Exploring natural elements and processes, Badur’s experimental designs range from accessories to furniture and are frequently composed of porcelain, textile, and natural stone.
Badur earned her BA in Industrial and Communication Design from Germany’s University of Arts Braunschweig and her MA in Contextual Design from Design Academy Eindhoven. Her work has been featured in international media and exhibited at several museums and international design events, including the Van Abbemuseum, Dutch Design Week, and London Design Festival, among many others. Badur’s Blue Sunday series is part of the permanent collection of the National Museum of Decorative Arts & Design in Trondheim.
