Tortoise 7.1" Small Vase by Ted Muehling for Nymphenburg Porcelain

“Tortoises are survivors from past times,” Ted Muehling. 

7.1" h.  Biscuit with glazed interior. 

Muehling reduces, abstracts and translates the natural form of the faceted armor to the matte white shards. In this way,  the designer places focus on the play of light and shadow in the unique transparency of the Nymphenburg porcelain.

Ted Muehling was born in Passaic, New Jersey, in 1953 and studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York. Muehling has been designing jewelry and objects inspired by natural shapes since 1976. "I try to restrict my vocabulary of shape by abstracting forms from nature and transforming them with the aim of creating objects that function just as well as they look. My designs trace the invisible shapes that exist between nature and our perception of it." Ted Muehling has received many awards, including the Chrysler Design Award and the America Fashion Coty Award. His works may be found in many private and public collections.
