Kalocsai Dorottya - Hidden
With my diploma project I designed a ceramic tableware collection for the Embassy of Hungary in The Hague, Netherlands. Gastronomy in diplomacy is characterised by fine dining trends, and in the level of service, materials, and ingredients.
In my diploma thesis my goal is to map and summarise the typical gastronomy, object culture, functionality, and other contemporary requirements of service in a diplomatic setting. The tableware concept also highlights Hungarian medicinal water culture. The shape of the ceramic pieces evokes different water surfaces and wave movements to refer to medicinal waters hidden in the ceramic glaze.
