After her graduation from the Royal College of Art in 1995, Dutch designer Ineke Hans first worked for Bořek Šípek before setting up her own studio in 1998. A residency at the European Ceramics Work Centre allowed her to experiment and learn new techniques.
In this process, Hans became interested in methods for assembling and mass-producing tableware from molded parts. In her Black Gold series, she attempted to assemble as many form types as possible from as few molded component types as possible.
