Handmade earthenware

I love all the little “mistakes” of old pottery. Tiny pinholes, a bit of warping, small damages made by a kiln prop and all the colours of old ‘whites’, the old white tiles with the different colors given by the rest of the kiln load.

Those flaws show us the people behind the tableware; the makers and the ones who used it.

Industrialization made us loose contact with the origin of objects and paved the way for mass consumption.

Fortunately a counter-movement has started and handmade is valued again.

Please slow down, take a look and enjoy.
