Anna Badur's Tide Collection is a range of porcelain vases, each featuring a unique wave pattern. She hand casts the vases in an archetypal shape. She then applies the blue, black, or green aqueous decor to the pure white form in an experimental process and fires 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. This Tide Vase measures 14 cm high, with a diameter of 9 cm.
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.
