PORCELAIN In Praise of Barnaby Barford (No. 11)

The artist, who created the tableware for the experienced traveller

Nymphenburg porcelain

This is one of Barnaby's 14 plates ...

The British artist Barnaby Barford ist a celebrity in his field of ceramics & porcelain, with a creativeness which brings him far – and sometimes to the borders of Kitsch. But whatever he produces is of high quality, never ugly, he works with the best manufacturers and herewith I recommand his „Global Service“ to my fellow travellers who are richer than I am. Barford did a set of 14 plates with a diameter of 12 inches or 28 cm for the famous Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg in Munich – and if you put the 14 plates on the table in the right order they form a worldmap, connected by the shadow of a plane in the air and in altering positions. The plates come in three colours (beige, green and turquois) and are limited to 25 sets, each costs 7500 Euro or nearly 10 000 US dollars.
