Entirely crafted by hand in my studio in Italy.
Please note that each piece is one of a kind and the photos represent the general design rather than the exact piece that I'm going to ship. I make very small batches in my studio and pieces come out all different. Each one is unique and special.
TECHNIQUES & MATERIALS
The delicate look and lightweight feel is achieved by making very thin layers of porcelain.
Each cup is hand made in my studio, glazed in transparent food safe glaze and fired twice at 1240°. Everything I use is food-safe.
The clay I use is a high quality porcelain and it has high translucency. Its colour after firing tends to a warm white.
WHY CHOOSING PORCELAIN
Porcelain is highly resistant and tends to last much better over the years than standard ceramic. That is because porcelain is denser, more uniform and harder than ceramics. It is fired to higher temperature, giving high strength to the finished product and making it more durable, most crack-resistant, almost impossible to stain, and with no absorption problems therefore completely food safe.
CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Clay is a natural and long-lasting material, therefore environmentally friendly. It is part of our tradition and history as many everyday objects were made of clay since ancient times. Since I care about environment, I use recycled packaging when possible and ask you to re-use it.
With your purchase you help me support Greenpeace: 1% of the value of every sale will be destined to protect our planet.
