Inmitten eines Services überrascht der Anblick einer fragilen Waffe aus Porzellan,
die wie selbstverständlich neben dem eleganten Teegedeck liegt.
Die Porzellan Pistole PP ist aus dem gleichen zarten Material wie das Urbino Gedeck
in der Königlichen Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (KPM) von Hand hergestellt. Stilgetreu
ist sie mit dem entsprechenden Goldrand Dekor bemalt und integriert sich vollkommen
in die Harmonie des zeitlosen Services.
Was zunächst idyllisch wirkt, enthüllt bei näherer Betrachtung seine metaphorische
Bedeutung. Als ein Teil des Services versinnbildlicht die Porzellan Pistole die
Zerbrechlichkeit des Lebens inmitten des Alltags, des Luxus und der Freude.
Auf irritierende Weise vereint das Kunstwerk Schönheit und Tod: „Et in arcadia ego“
– auch in Arkadien bin ich, sagt der Tod.

Die Ästhetik des Materials ist verführerisch. Wie dazugehörig liegt die zerbrechliche
Waffe auf dem Tisch und will in die Hand genommen werden. Die überraschende
Ergonomie der Porzellan Pistole steigert die Verunsicherung des Betrachters.
Der Knoten im Lauf der Pistole ist unsichtbar. Er liegt in der Fragilität des Materials.
Die Porzellan Pistole PP/G/U (Goldrand/Urbino) ist als präzise Nachbildung der Carl
Walther PPK passend zum KPM Urbino Service in der Berliner Manufaktur von Hand
erstellt und mit 24-karätigem Goldrand dekoriert.

Amidst the idyllic tableware the striking surprise: a fragile Porcelain Pistol
attracts attention, sitting as naturally on the table, as if it belongs to the
timeless tea cover ever since. The Porcelain Pistol PP indeed is made of
exactly the same high quality material as the Urbino cover, which is handmade
by the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (Royal Porcelain Manufactory
Berlin, KPM
). Painted with the corresponding golden rim decor it integrates
itself perfectly into the harmony of the timeless Urbino service.
What first appears idyllic reveils a metaphorical sense at closer attention.
As a part of the tableware, the Porcelain Pistol symbolizes the fragility of life
within the everyday routine, luxury and happiness.
The piece unites beauty and death in an irritating way: “Et in Arcadia ego”
– I am in Arcadia, too, death says. The beauty of the material is seductive.
As if quite naturally belonging to the set, the fragile weapon is asking to be
picked up. The Porcelain Pistol’s coolness and surprisingly comfortable grip
increase the qualms of the user.

However, the knot in the barrel of the pistol is invisible.
It is in the fragility of the material.

The Porcelain Pistol PP/G/U (Golden Rim/Urbino) is a precise replica of the
Carl Walther PPK. It is handmade and decorated with a 24-carat golden rim
at the Berlin Manufacture KPM to perfectly fit the KPM Urbino service.
