chamotte





 
Ceramic pots have appeared as a need to store food and produce once man made the transition from nomadic lifestyle to creating settlements and practice agriculture.
The project explores a minimal ceramic design that reminds of the simple archaic ceramic pots and the functional and aesthetic properties of a mixture of clay and grog (chamotte) that with one firing process creates suitable objects for food and liquid storage. 
The project: 3 food containers and a fruit bowl/flower vase.
