'Tsukiji' nesting bowls, handpainted white porcelain
Limited edition white porcelain nesting bowls entirely crafted by hand. Gold fish and carps on 7 bowls inspired by Tsukiji Tokyo fish market and born from a collaboration project with italian ceramicist Baulhaus. These simple and elegant handpainted bowls come in different sizes from 11 cm (4'') to 25 cm (10'').
The clean lines of porcelain speak of sensuality, transparency and unicity but also of practicality. Oven, microwave and dishwasher safe although a gentle hand wash would be more appropriate.
Entirely crafted by hand in my studio in Italy.

TECHNIQUES & MATERIALS
The delicate look and lightweight feel is achieved by using very thin slabs of porcelain. Each piece is carefully slab built using porcelain in my studio in Italy, glazed in transparent inside, sanded smooth outside and fired twice to 1255°. Everything I use is food-safe.
The clay I use is a high quality Limoges 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 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.
