Famous for her quirky and maverick designs, Marianne von Ooij's latest project is a set of surreal ceramic crockery inspired by social aspects of dining out.

Dressed for Dinner incorporates a collection of white ‘dressed-up’ plates and bowls, decorated with sculptural detailing in the form of cuffs, collars and zippers. 

'Be it a date, a dinner for work or a first meeting with the in-laws, we all know how anticipation of the event, lingering over the right wardrobe, getting dressed, attraction and seduction during the evening all are as much part of dining as enjoying the food itself”, says von Oolj who is also currently one of the residing artists at New York's MAD museum's Open Studios: Artists at Work program. Visitors to the museum's sixth floor will be able to see the artist at work until the end of February.
