“In the old Japan, it was said that one could clearly distinguish porcelain from any other ceramic material by its sound”.
Lightness counter to hardness, delicacy counter to deepness and minimalism counter to a meaningful and strong concept is the spirit of our collection.
Specifically formulated for this project, this black porcelain has been craftily processed after long research: choosing the right type of porcelain, drying it and mixing natural oxides and minerals to find the perfect black. A unique material, not found on the market, that makes a very special and exclusive dinnerware set for minimalistic kitchens.
Porcelain dinnerware was thus considered to please all senses: smooth to the fingertips, beautiful to look at, delightful to the lips, carrying delicious smells and making the most subtle and clean tinkling sound.
Rarely worked by hand due to its challenging nature, this collection has been totally handmade –thrown or hand built- giving it a slight wave and imperfect shape, adding a touch of warmth to this legendary icy material.
Glazed with a glossy black and fired to 1280ºC, porcelain is waterproof, harder and thus highly resistant to scratching, acids or heat.
In spite of its delicate appearance, these pieces are suitable for everyday use, oven, and dishwasher safe.
