The Dutch designer Hella Jongerius has created 300 unique vases as special collectors artwork to accompany the handmade, signed and numbered edition of the book: Hella Jongerius, Misfit.

Phaidon.com went to the oldest factory in The Netherlands: Royal Tichelaar Makkum, for a tour of the beautiful factory with the Managing Director, Jan Tichelaar, to see how these vases were made and to hear more about the different layers of colour applied.

'The story is about experimenting,' says Jan Tichelaar. 'It is an experiment which became a project which became a product.'

Now there's an idea for a special present...
