Belgian design studio Fou de Feu has created two collections of ceramics including vases shaped like soap bubbles.
Fou de Feu's most recent collection Forms No Figures features decorative objects and a lamp, which combine lightly glazed ceramics and honey maple wood.
"This collection was inspired by industrial forms you find in old factories," said designer Veerle Van Overloop. "Because these are originally made from wood, I decided to combine it with the ceramic."
The wood is used to create the base and a rim around the ceramic shade of the simple lamp.
The decorative items come in a range of similar shapes. Some have wooden tops while others have wooden bottoms.
A few of these pieces have a small hole in the top so they can be used as candle holders or vases.
Fou de Feu has also crafted a collection of unglazed ceramic vases that look like combinations of soap bubbles, called Life's a Bubble.
These round vessels are all a slightly different shape and either black or white.
Other ceramics on Dezeen include porcelain with patterns that play on traditional designs of Japanese pottery and a range of plates and bowls created from analogue 3D-printed moulds. See more ceramic design »
