Porcelain Decks

A little while ago Man Yau brought these Porcelain decks to live - we thought its worth a repost when you had that bonghit before: "Porcelain Decks" took place at CaliHelsinki, the concept store, in September 2012. The exhibition consisted of 12 different decks made out of porcelain that are illustrated with various ceramic techniques. In addition a short film was made in collaboration with production company Cocoa and Angel Films.

Tomi Freeman, the head designer of CTRL Clothing has illustrated three of the porcelain decks. Each of the decks were handmade and unique. Helsinki-based designer Man Yau (b. 1991) graduated as a Bachelor of Arts in ceramics and glass design from Aalto University's School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Yau's works have been previously exhibited in group shows in Finland at Design Museum, World Design Capital Pavillion and Galleria Köln. Her works that combine art and design have also been on display abroad at DMY International Design Festival and Unplus Gallery in Berlin. Yau has also done illustration for Finnish companies Seven Inch Skateboards and CTRL Clothing. "Porcelain Decks" was Yau's first solo show.
