Personal Porcelain Plates (My Private Sky): The Ultimate in Custom Gifting



Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram have designed a limited-edition set of parametric hand made and hand painted dinner plates for Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg titled MY PRIVATE SKY. The project represents the ultimate in personalization: each set shows the night sky at the date and place of birth of the buyer.

Custom Constellation Plates (My Private Sky) by KRAM/WEISSHAAR

When a buyer orders his set of plates he gives his date and place of birth. The buyer's personal night sky map is then calculated by a custom computer program and printed onto a set of blueprints followed by Nymphenburg's master porcelain painters. Each set of dinner plates involves the hand-painting of some 500 stars, nebulae, planets and constellations in gold and platinum.

A thorough analysis of the traditional methods at Nymphenburg, the Bavarian Kings' former porcelain manufacturer, turned the designers' attention towards utilizing and manipulating centuries old processes in a contemporary context. By designing a program rather than a single drawing, the designers combine the excellence of the master porcelain painters at Nymphenburg with the potential of custom-developed computer code.

Nymphenburg will issue an edition of 100+10 unique copies of MY PRIVATE SKY.
