EBBE: porcelain bowls by Anna Badur

EBBE is the German word for low tide. EBBE is a series of porcelain bowls made by the Berlin-based designer Anna Badur, where the pattern is caused by gentle water movements – the results are inspiring unique patterns. Anna’s work is driven by an experimental approach and a passion for materials inspired by nature.

Nature and natural processes inspire me. I grew up very close to the north sea and I spent a lot of time outside.

Anna Badur: My ideas quite often come while I am observing my surrounding – especially nature. The pattern of the EBBE series is inspired by a principle we all know from the beach at low tide when the sand transforms into these little riffles. I translate this concept into my work and let pigments form up by gentle water movement.

Anna Badur: My ceramic work combines two contrasting ways of working, which I like very much. On one hand, I am a perfectionist regarding the shape of my objects – they require high precision working, especially in porcelain; on the other hand, I love experiments which can be seen in my decors – the results are always partly left to chance. 

Anna Badur: Nature and natural processes inspire me. I grew up very close to the north sea and I spent a lot of time outside. 
The idea of how natural processes can become part of the design process fascinates me.
