MOD
Mod is a modular object that can hold one flower or many, pencils or paintbrushes, candy or paper clips — or just your attention for a fleeting moment.

It has 5 parts: a waterproof ceramic base with 4 wooden attachments. Stack and use as one object or many.

Use it as a wide, tall or single stem vase or a lidded jar; no matter which wooden top you use on the ceramic base, the rest stack to become a complete object.

Inspired by ubiquitous drain pipes scattered around a city perpetually under construction, and the archetypal Indian ‘tiffin carrier’, Mod is a precisely crafted vessel that invites interaction.

PART 1

Base

The ceramic cylinder is an open-ended vessel that lets users decide what it is. It may start life off as a vase, that once cracked becomes a pen stand or a keeper of forgotten things.

PART 2

Flat base / Lid

The second base, Part 2, acts as a base to create a complete object in wood with Parts 4 and/or 5. Place it on top of Part 3, and you have a small wooden vessel.

PART 4

Bottleneck

Turn the wide ceramic vessel into a single stem vase by placing the Bottleneck on Part 1. Insert Part 5 in between, and use it for long stems. Or stack it up with Part 1 and/or 2 to make make a wooden holder.

PART 3

Lid / Little bowl

Place it on top of Part 1 and there’s a lidded jar. Place it under Part 2 and you have a small lidded bowl. Or, use it by it self as a simple little holder to keep odds and ends.

PART 4

Bottleneck

Turn the wide ceramic vessel into a single stem vase by placing the Bottleneck on Part 1. Insert Part 5 in between, and use it for long stems. Or stack it up with Part 1 and/or 2 to make make a wooden holder.

PART 3

Lid/Little bowl

Place it on top of Part 1 and there’s a lidded jar. Place it under Part 2 and you have a small lidded bowl. Or, use it by it self as a simple little holder to keep odds and ends.

PART 5

Conduit

Extend your vase/ holder with the conduit or connect two pieces that otherwise won’t fit.

Stoneware and teak wood

Each ceramic vessel is thrown on the potters wheel and wooden attachments, turned on the lathe.

minim is a craft-led design practice run by a potter and a graphic designer.

Our objects hum with the quality of being individually made and the ability of being responsibly manufactured.

We see our mixed media objects as a dialogue between two makers, two materials and often, two backgrounds. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we do.
