    IDW #93: Crockery Set

    Topic: Crockery Set

    Background: This round is a sort of follow-up of the Cutlery round a from a while ago: IDW #55: Cutlery. Since that topic was rather succesful in its outcome, and since we haven't had a more down-to-earth topic in IDW for a while now I thought it might be a good idea.

    There are a few things to consider here. First of all, with crockery I mean stuff like plates, bowl and the like. You are allowed to include more than just that, like cutlery or other items you would like to add, but this is not necessary. Also, you can make them out of any material you like. I know most are made out of ceramics, but plastics, metals or woods are allowed too.

    Secondly, the brief is rather open, but the request for you is to tighten it down for yourself before going into rendering too soon. Define a culture or time period or style that your crockery has to convey, and design and draw to make if fit with that choice. In fact, it might be good to mention it in a post in here to see if others are doing the same.

    Also, again, we're talking about a set of items. Giving each piece an individual character is allowed, but I'd advice to try and bind the items together with a style or design language. Defining the previous point might be a great help for that.

    Lastely, you'll need to include more than one item in your final image. Three would usually do, doing more is encouraged of course. Doing them in ortho's rather than in a single rendering is allowed, that's up to you.


    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a crockery set, meaning more than one piece of the same set.
    2. Chose a specific time period, style and/or culture for which you're going to design it for before you start rendering them!
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Wednesday, February 25

    Post your final entries here: Finals Thread

    Ooooo. Looks like fun. I don't want to get into copyright trouble for posting a photo out of a book, but at this very moment I'm looking at "Study for Plate 59" from Documents Decoratifs by Alphonse Mucha, in Sketchbook for the Artist by Sarah Simblet, and drooling. (Did that sentence make sense?) Art nouveau silver plate and serving set. And wasn't there a cutlery round some time back (from my lurking days)? That would be neat to see for some inspiration/ideas.

    bone china definetly comes to mind, though that maybe a little straight forward, im also thinking the surrealists set, but then again could be whole different set of complications

    Oh dear...


    I feel stupid. I think I just got a little excited. Sorry.

    So, some sketches, mainly just some ideas. I know it's not just plates. I'm liking the one with all the wires off of it, but eating off of that would be a health hazard. I could just take the wire off though. I like the one underneath it too, and it's a lot more usable. Then again, does everything have to be completely usable? In general fine china is pulled out, like what, three times a year. The ruffly one in the top right corner is the third choice.

    In terms of a style or culture etc. I'm not sure what either would be. Mad scientist who runs electricity through the wires to keep the rats out of his food when he/she forgets to eat is while in the middle of long experiments? But that's not culture.

    I think by style and culture, Yoitisi is asking you to define the common motif and time/place of your set, as in:
    "This is the steampunk "mobilis in mobili" crockery they used on the Nautilus."
    or
    "This is a futuristic biodegradable crockery set."
    or
    "This is my concept for the crockery at the Mad Hatter's tea party."

    It looks like you are already thinking of those things, e.g. "eating in space"

    Pixie Trick: Yep arttorney is right there, 'culture' here means that you chose a background setting in which your crockery has to fit. This could be the example he mentioned, but there's basically tons of options. If you want to design something contemporary that people can buy in the shops right now I'm fine with it as well. The whole idea of chosing a background is that you design your crockery for a specific target group, and not just randomly because you think your sketch was kind of okay

    WIPs. A gravitational set. This allows the food to stay on you plate, in your bowl, and on your fork in space and on low gravity planets. The set can turn on and off to conserve power and is made of high quality steel which is easily disinfected. The cutlery can be locked in, and the cup is attachable by clip.

    Inspired by Rick Mercer trying to eat food in the Vomit Comet. I think I need to add a cover for the cup, because if the cup turns over, the liquid will still float away, and since it's only the food that the gravity is affecting, the cup still floats around.

    IDW #93: Crockery Set
    Hey yoitisi, Is ir required that we do plates,cups & bowls? i want to make a fondue pot that matches the soup bowl im working on... and like maybe somekinda matching casserole dish.Those things are generally considered crockery...but i'll do plates and such if its a must. Also--- Do salt shakers count? heh

    noche mine's just tentacle love, really. LOL
    Atlantis is a great idea. Looking forward to seeing yours!
