Delft, the blue-and-white pottery named after its town of origin in Holland, was produced in mass quantities starting in the sixteenth century in decorative and practical forms, from tulipieres to tile. The shade of blue was inspired by Chinese porcelain manufactures, highly coveted during Holland’s golden age, and has left an indelible mark on ceramic-ware. Artist Bouke de Vries explores the importance of the style as a reflection of national heritage with his work reconfiguring broken pieces of Delft, as in his installation titled “Homeland.” Deborah Osburn offers a maximalist and modern approach by manipulating the scale of Delft tiles with her seventeenth-century collection for clé, and Seletti subverts notions of kitsch with Maxime Ansiau’s Multidish collection.
