Tierras by Patricia Urquiola
The collection is based on the concept of sedimentation and Mediterranean craft traditions.
Different kind of lavas, of terracotta, and of clays, chromatically matching with each other, combine and mix, enriching and softening the black base of recycled ceramics on which they deposit, making it timidly emerge on the surface.
Tierras is revisited tradition, a project which develops around the concept of sedimentation and the long Mediterranean artisan memories, elements which come out from earth, marked by the hand of man and by time passing.
The collection is realized in homogeneous porcelain stoneware, produced with the innovative continua technology: a modern productive system based on the dry processing of the ceramic powders. The result is a very solid substance, characterized by a palette of very intense, deep, earthy and natural colors, saturated by the black base.
