work in progress

Materials: porcelain, wicker and wood

Workbench Tray represents a new phase of Workbench, a deep research project that explores feelings and technical possibilities of combining wicker and clay, in order to identify new languages and processes. Entirely handmade with natural materials, Workbench Tray is the result of knowledges and intuitions reached inside different craftsmen workshops. The delicacy of porcelain joins the flexibilty of wicker thanks to a single wire that runs all along the tray, naturally guiding its shape, and sits atop a stable wooden base.

Work carried out thanks to Ceramiche Vicentine, District of Ceramics, Porcelain and Artistic Glass of Nove and Antoniazzi & Piovesana.
