Inge Bečka, designer of porcelain and Mariëtte Wolbert, designer of textile have compiled together a collection called 'The Ridge Collection'.
The basis of this collection is a woven cloth by the design of Mariëtte and hand-woven in India. This cloth design was nominated for the 'Dutch Design Award'. Mariëtte utilizes this cloth in 3D-objects and tiles.
Yearly working in China as a resident artist, Inge uses these objects and tiles to make plaster moulds for porcelain clay casting. The form and shape of these castings are individually distorted and adapted, making each object unique. Hence also by working in this manner ‘The Ridge Collection' is made in small series only.
Through Purmerend, India, Westbeemster and China ‘The Ridge Collection 2015' is formed.
