Spring on the table: Joyful easter with porcelain from Hering Berlin
Whether at an Easter brunch in the garden or in the festively designed apartment: the time of year when nature fully awakens and spring unfolds its full splendour is a period of enjoyment in the entire northern hemisphere. At the focal point of all these occasions is a particularly beautiful porcelain piece that brings the joyful mood of awakening nature to your terrace, dining table, or sunlit living room. The handmade tableware collections, glasses, and vases from the Hering Berlin manufactory are wonderful accompaniments throughout this season that uplifts the senses.
Sumptuous blossoms captured on bisque porcelain
No service brings the mood of spring to a laid table better than the Palmhouse X Collection; launched just a few months ago, it has already received two prestigious international design awards. For this collection, designer Stefanie Hering broke away from her usual colour palette of white, grey, and subdued nude and blue shades for the first time: the sophisticated plates of dazzling white bisque porcelain are enlivened with a floral decoration inspired by tropical flowers in delicate green-grey, cheerful yellow, and vibrant coral red.
The elements include coffee and tea cups, a teapot, and cake and bread plates, as well as large coupe, dining, and soup plates: everything you need to lay out a stunning Easter breakfast or spring lunch or dinner. For those who prefer more minimalistic decorations, a wide selection of plates, bowls, serving dishes, and plateaus for a wide variety of dining options are available with the delicate gold and nude decorations from Silent Brass and Illusion, in addition to the pure white Velvet, Pulse, and Cielo collections.
Gifts that will last beyond Easter: objects from the Cielo collection
The various objects from Stefanie Hering's probably most artful collection, Cielo, are perfect for presenting small gifts or the obligatory Easter eggs, as well as for serving festive cakes or cheese or salmon boards. The trained master ceramicist pushed the robustness limits of the porcelain mix especially developed for this purpose to the limits of the feasible: the wide plate rims are honeycombed with a perforated pattern punched in by hand, while the bowls and bread baskets feature hand-cut holes that offer enticing glimpses of their contents. Weather you're extend breakfast and lunch, dinner or coffee and tea moments.
Small plates for chocolate bunnies and delicacies
Chocolate Easter eggs look particularly pretty on the small spinner plates available in the Blue Silent, Ocean, Alif, and Obsidian collections, among others. You can even have a bunny hopping over your Easter table in the form of a porcelain decoration on the cake and bread plate from the "Piqueur" collection, with its forest and fauna motifs, developed by designer Stefanie Hering in collaboration with top chef Harald Rüssel.
Make space for spring: with the variety of vases from Hering Berlin
In addition to flowers captured on porcelain, the Hering Berlin collections also offer a myriad of possibilities for bringing the real splendour of spring into your home, in the form of handmade vases with refined shapes and subtle decorations that provide an impressive setting for lush bouquets or delicate individual flowers. Designer Stefanie Hering developed a particularly large number of different vase shapes for the Pulse collection, which seems to bring the velvety-white surface of the bisque porcelain to life with a rib pattern created by hand using a special wash-out technique.
Discovering the vases and porcelain dinnerware from Hering Berlin and combining them for the various upcoming occasions according to the mix & match principle is an inspiring pleasure for all the senses. But not only that: it is also the best way you can imagine to prepare for spring.
