As a ceramic artist I'm always curious about how others artists work and experiment with standard materials. And I'm continually amazed by how much energy goes into producing ceramic wares. This video artfully tours through Dutch designer Hella Jongerius' creation of 300 unique vases. As Managing Director Jan Tichelaar explains, "The intrinsic value of the product is the process...

...The story is about experimenting. An experiment which becomes the project, which becomes the product." This project is certainly a "combination of combinations." It's a story that when told, and shown, allows us greater understanding of the laborious and thoughtful efforts that go into such creations; it's inspiring.
