Sand Series is a collection of objects with a glossy glazed finish on the inside, matte and rugged, with a sandy appearance on the outside.
Simple, pure and useful, Sand Series pieces are touch-friendly.
There is something hypnotic and relaxing about a recurrent geometrical shape. The way it seems to multiply to infinity in mathematical perfection.
This collection is inspired by an architectural feature that most of us don’t pay much attention to, but which has a very definitive purpose: it sets the limits of our intimate familial space, I am referring to the humble but powerful fence, from traditional to modern, and it’s more decorative cousin, the window grid, with its various models wrought in iron.
Decorative and functional at the same time, these elements of architecture are a sort of passage from one reality to another, between the outside world and the inside of our homes.
I use these powerful and perfectly balanced shapes as inspiration. I reinterpret them and through this transformation I share with you the beauty and art of such unassuming and (apparently) ordinary things as the gate, the fence or the grid.
Every piece in this collection is lovingly made and painted by hand.
A mix of two ceramic materials. Stoneware & porcelain combined into one object.
Star gazing has been our pastime since the dawn of humanity.
People looked to the sky to find the meaning of life itself. To make sense of this vast, cold and bewitched universe, we assigned it shapes and forms which had meaning and ascendance over us: animals (fear, respect, food), tools (taming, usefulness), and gods (destiny, transcendence).
Besides immortality, and the philosopher’s stone, the other quest that has propelled humanity for ages has been that of divining the future. And who better to foretell our destiny but the stars themselves: cold, distant and wise.
So we started charting the astrological signs, mapping the sky and predicting our lives at the same time. Hoping to avoid sorrow and disaster, and to find love and prosperity.
I look at the stars and they mesmerize me. And so I wanted to create my own constellations. Because who’s to say we cannot arrange our lucky stars the way we want to.
This collection is about simplicity, purity and usefulness.
The unencumbered shapes, the solitary or recurring lines, the pure white and eye catching cobalt blue will soothe you when you need a break from the whirlwind world.
Invite your best friend over to plan your next adventure over tea and cake. Have your family around for a special dinner. Share a cup of something delicious with your loved one.
Stop, breathe and enjoy the simple pleasures that life will afford you.
