The Teapot Project: Hendrick Forster & Kenny Yong-soo Son
A 76 page book that documents The Teapot Project by Hendrik Forster and Kenny Yong soo Son.
The Teapot Project is a unique collaboration between master gold and silversmith Hendrik Forster and object maker and designer Kenny Yong soo Son. Their collaboration and shared design philosophy elevates the everyday object and uncovers fabrication capabilities that we still have in abundance in this country.
Both Hendrik and Kenny strongly believe that production resolution lies in the balance of traditional handcraftsmanship and local industrial processes and this project presents an excellent example. It is the training and vision of these two practitioners that informed the project, ensuring the journey and process is as remarkable as the outcome.
