Wedgwood Award for Best Presentation to Product Design Senior Jarong Koo

Parsons students were invited to participate in the fourth annual Wedgwood competition. Seth Nagelberg and his Ceramic Design 1 course visited the Waterford Wedgwood Showroom to receive the design brief in February. This years theme, “What is old is new” asked students to look back at Wedgwood’s 254 year history and reinterpret a classic design into a dinnerware setting. Instructor PJ Carlino put it in perspective by demonstrating resources for research. Jarang designed Tune a nesting dinnerware setting that combines the historical technique of engine turning with contemporary desire for compact living.
