The In Bloom Collection by Zemer Peled is the result of an encounter between a talented young artist and exceptional craftsmanship. During her residency at the Manufacture Bernardaud, Zemer Peled spent time observing and understanding the complexity of creating a porcelain piece. It is with great enthusiasm that she became interested in the know how of decoration, alongside an expert who has been working at Bernardaud for more than 30 years. She learned to perform a quick, precise gesture and to perfectly control the pressure of her brush to achieve the desired effect: a decor where you feel the gesture and texture. (see her process at http://bit.ly/In-Bloom-by-Zemer-Peled).
Zemer has succeeded in translating the movement and dynamism of her sculptural work onto Bernardaud porcelain pieces. Her blooming and vibrant flowers seem to spring from plates, cups, saucers and bowls. But as always with the creationg of Zemer Peled, there is more to see… In this collection, the artist plays with depth and perception, a recurring theme in her work.
From afar, the In Bloom Collection shows flowers. However, those who slow down to take a closer look will see the cohesive image dissolve into Peled’s lively brush marks. Therefore, with this collection, the artist invites you to slow down, to look until you truly see, and to savor these moments of commitment.
Zemer Peled was born in Israel in 1983. A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, her work examines the beauty and brutality of nature. Her works are made up of thousands of pieces of porcelain shards, obtained from strips or slabs of raw or glazed porcelain that she makes and breaks. She then uses these fragments to build sculptures and installations of various sizes, present in many private collections around the world. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
Bernardaud is available at Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La and Rustan’s Cebu.
