Karen Kjældgård-Larsen grew up with the Blue Fluted service and had always been fascinated by it and the small differences that typify the hand-painted service and make every single piece unique.
She was only 26 years old when she first knocked on the door at Royal Copenhagen and the meeting led to the launch of Blue Fluted Mega. It was therefore also with great respect for the old service, which was the porcelain factory's first back in 1775, that the Blue Fluted Mega decoration came into being.
Selected fragments of the traditional Blue Fluted decoration are enlarged, so that beautifully sweeping lines and portions of the stylised chrysanthemum form an almost graphical whole.
The Blue Fluted Mega products have all been created on the basis of the shapes from the original Blue Fluted service of 1775.
"The Blue Fluted pattern is very Danish, of high quality, expensive, nostalgic, romantic, old fashioned etc. so if changed, but still recognized, you can actually make quite a statement".
"You only have to transform it slightly and the change will be extremely obvious. I suppose that is because the decoration is rooted in people's minds".
