Bodega x Filling Pieces “Ceramic Blue Mountain Cut”.

by Henrik Buzzi

Boston’s Bodega and Amsterdam’s Filling Pieces have joined forces to take blue and white porcelain on another journey, not just across the ocean, but across cultures. The locales commonly associated with Jingdezhenware: antique shops, museums, the lavish homes of the impossibly rich, are not considered simpatico with the world of sneakers and streetwear, where an overwhelming emphasis is placed on youth and up to the moment modernity. Neither Bodega nor Filling Pieces have gotten to where they are by being content with doing things the usual way. So, as the trading ships of old introduced porcelain to an amazed and adoring audience bringing a traditional Asian motif to the contemporary style of the Mountain Cut silhouette is just an opportunity for this classical beauty to be enjoyed in a new form. After all, everyone deserves a chance to appreciate the finer things in life. The Bodega x Filling Pieces Ceramic Blue Mountain Cut releases in limited numbers on May 7th, exclusively through Bodega.
