11 Objects that Showcase the Possibilities of Ceramics
The versatile and sustainable qualities of fired clay are on display in these innovative designs.
An installation last month by Masquespacio, at the Madrid trade show Casa Decor, explored the timeless, magical, even alchemical qualities of innovative ceramic objects. A Look to the Future from the Past, sponsored by Roca Tile, showcased fired clay as a versatile (and sustainable) material, which has influenced not only the history of architecture and decorative arts, but how we live, in a broader sense, because of the existence of items such as pottery and tile.
Across the globe, artists and designers continue to push the limits of this ancient material. From tableware to lighting to furniture—in small-batch and one-off productions—these 11 objects provide a glimpse into the possibilities of clay.
