Ceramic Heart Playing Cards, Set of 14

£0.00xx

Equal parts eclectic and enchanting, these handmade ceramic playing cards are made from clay found in the Westerwald region of Germany, on the banks of the river Rhine.

They are the perfect conversation piece to beguile guests, adding character and a sense of theatre anywhere they are displayed.

The aesthetic was inspired by design templates from ancient book illustrations, which are then printed on paper with a silkscreen technique, prior to being fixed onto the ceramic base. 

 

Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

L: 10cm
W: 6.5cm


The Story

Bernard Kuhn’s ceramic studio was founded in the early 1990’s in Berlin. His designs are inspired by a combination of punk rock and Baroque courtly life, with its opulence and glamour. The collection ranges from functional bowls, mugs and dishes to whimsically impractical porcelain playing cards and golden dice.
Made completely by hand, the imperfect nature of each piece adds an ironic quality to the opulent baroque style which Bernhard infuses into his work.
