The procedure of making and the beauty
Materials are the origin of our work. Their essence is what inspires our
collections. We seek to enhance their imperfections, beauty, elegance and
sophistication by creating unique objects. An experience involving shades,
colors, roughness, textures, transparency, reflections, warmth, lightness,
subtlety, balance and contrast.
Starting with an investigation on historical materials, we bring them into
a new context by rethinking their aesthetics. Our collections cherish the
experience of craft and reinforce the value of materials. We are intrigued
by the magic that occurs when combining traditional materials with new
techniques and contemporary ideas.
Each material brings new knowledge to our studio, enriching our processes
and methods. Our materials range from black clay, Talavera ceramic,
handblown recycled glass, brass, copper, onyx, and volcanic stones.
