2013 / biscuit porcelain from Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg / H40 x W35 x D20 cm /
edition of 25

 

A handcrafted, oversized, seven-litre Maß tankard, produced in partnership with Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur, celebrates the brewing traditions in Germany, while drawing attention to this unnoticed, yet familiar object. Often used boisterously, the use of white biscuit porcelain belies its traditional function and calls for the viewer to respond to its pure form, free of practical purpose, and represents the relationship between measure (Maß) and moderation.
