Delft Punk

By Duane King

The work of Rotterdam-based artist and designer Maxime Ansiau is a fusion of traditional craft and contemporary wit. Case in point, Skyscraper, an edition of plates created in 2008. Inspired by delftware, the plates feature historic buildings whose sections have been repeated to create skyscrapers that span conjoined plates. Fun and smart.
