Sebastian Bergne: EYE

‘eye’

london-based designer sebastian bergne has collaborated with manufacturers gaia & gino

and swarovki on ‘eye’, a family of table top objects which utilizes the five hundred year old tradition

of iznik ceramic prouduction. for bergne, the project is a meeting point of eastern and western cultures.

‘eye’ has its origins in the traditional turkish ‘nazar’ charms that are carried or displayed to protect

their owner from the ‘evil eye’ or bad luck. bergne has reinterpreted these charms and translated them

into a series of over-sized motifs that seem to watch over us.

the pieces are made in traditional the iznik factories of western anatolia, using quartz based clay

and glaze recipes which date back hundreds of years. the inclusion of the swarovski crystals add

texture and light to the pupil.
