The Surface collection is a very personal project for me and one that comes from a long-standing desire to create and surprise. It was inspired by the raw nature of Zeeland. Its rough textures and beautiful imperfections expose what is real and what is true... From the deep grey of the mystic North Sea to a scarred and ageing skin, every surface is a symbol of depth.
Every surface tells a story. Unlike Surface, Inku is much more sophisticated, almost feminine. There is a clear reference to nature, with its abstract structures and the Japanese blossoms that are clearly recognisable within. The radial typography, often associated with the iconic Mount Fiji, also features in the collection. The exceptional thing about Inku plates is that no two are precisely the same. The layer of glaze creates small imperfections that fit completely into the Wabi-Sabi feeling that Sergio Herman intended with this project.
