The Collection

Diarama is a study about pure colour, applied on different ceramic basis like a second skin. The project comes from the desire of giving birth to a collection characterised by a wide range of chromatic shades, that come to light spontaneously and randomly by stratifying colours, as it happens in paintings. Depending on the combination between body and glaze, the result will always be singular.

Diarama is made of glazed porcelain stoneware in a single size of 9.4x18.7 cm and is composed by various glazed chromatic references, applied on 7 different matte coloured clay bases. Each reference comes from the application of the same glaze on the top of the different coloured bases, which react in an unpredictable way and create an array of always inhedit nuances, distinguished in two macro-groups called Light and Dark. 

The colour range

The macro-groups Light and Dark are complemented by Diarama Black and White, where the glaze applied on the 7 bases is respectively black, Iron, or white, Chalk. Combined together, they create the black & white combination: Dusk. Diarama Mix overturns this principle. Different coloured glazes are applied on the same black or grey base, creating Black Chroma and Grey Chroma.

“I’ve used the tiles as canvas, to see how different bodies of coloured clay reacted when a glaze was applied on top of them. I didn’t want the upper surface to simply appear to be coloured, but mixed, as if it were an oil painting.”
