Delicate everyday tableware
Together with potter Ricardo Lopes we share an interest in red clay, and in him we have found the best partner for exploring the natural properties and behaviors of this material. Ricardo turns the red clay very thin and by firing on high temperatures it becomes extremely hard -far more so than usual terracotta objects. This process fosters a refinement of terracotta into something akin to porcelain or chinaware.
This set is the pioneering materialization of this process. With a transparent finishing glaze inside and on the upper top we want to reveal the beauty of this natural material. Traces will become part of the aging process as the pieces are used.
