oak, porcelain

 

The shelf made of oak and porcelain shows how caramics can be used as a functional, but yet aesthetic element in the object

 

 

The dowels holding the shelves are made of porcelain, which often is being percieved as a fragile material, but actually porcelain is quite strong and durable, because of the compressed component structure in the clay, produced by the high temperature in the kiln

 

 

Even though the dowels are not that obvious, they play a central role in the piece as an example of how a simple detail of another material can change the whole perception of the piece as being functional
