Jacob Raeder saw it all in a dream: a table-landscape of luscious green hills, begging to be stroked and tended to. This dream resulted in pots shaped like American silos, made of plain red clay and overgrown with garden cress. Touching, touchable and beautiful in the light. Raeder considers himself to be a ‘clay-nerd’; he is in love with this tactile, inviting material that we use on so many levels in our daily life. He is also very aware of the role of the designer in creating physical experiences in a world that’s increasingly oriented on virtual life. For this project he won the Rietveldprijs for fine art.
