Food is not just found in front of you on a plate. It can be found on trees and plants where you collect it and eat it straight away while talking with relatives. The memory of lifted hands reaching for berries, plums and cherries is the main inspiration for my project.
The designed porcelain vessel is modular: place one module over another and it presents a vertical construction which shape is inspired by aloe plant. The construction is inviting the human hands to reach for the food, as a main hub on a table for buffets or casual parties. Placing vessels separately, as a random composition, can be read as a ceramic meadow.
The dual-chamber vessel allow for creativity: to dip food from cub in the sauce from the leaf or vice versa. The grooves on the leaves can be used as a place for small foods on-a-stick.

HOW IT IS MADE:
I use extra white porcelain which I prepare myself in my studio in Modena, Italy. I cast them and refine by hand. I hand paint my sign it with my personal signature, then I fire it in my ceramic kiln at high temperature 1250 °C (2282 °F).
We pack pieces very carefully to make sure they arrive safely.
