Nicholas Baker – Notch

The Notch collection, inspired by the elegant functionality of Scandinavian design, brings simple solutions to the table. I designed each item to have an additional feature. The salt and pepper have easy pouring and filling nozzles. The creamer has a lid that also lets the user adjust the flow of cream. The sugar bowl simply has a spoon on the end of its lid for quick scooping. Each piece was slip cast, then fired in a matte black and a gloss white to add interest and contrast to the collection. This collection was collaboration with Umbra.
