Arman, Breaking With Tradition

Anyone with a cursory knowledge of the late French-born artist and sculptor Arman knows his disdain for objects shown in pristine form. Objects in disarray—sometimes torn, often sliced, frequently twisted or just plain blown to smithereens—was Arman’s preferred path to visual expression. This limited edition set of porcelain Demi Assiette plates are Arman’s welcome and amusing interpretation of the traditional buffet plate. Manufactured in Limoges by porcelain house Bernardaud, and sold by Artware Editions, the set of 6 comes in at a cool $1,300. A bit steep for plates, yes, but just think of the cocktail chatter.Screen shot 2013-10-23 at 1.56.20 PM

    Love how disruptive these plates are… my eye is so surprised when it cuts off like that, but then I love the blue edge. You’re definitely left wondering why dishware is shaped the way it is… beautiful!
