Jug and 2 glasses handmade in high temperature ceramics small contemporary yet inspired by traditional carafes pitcher decorative
Our carafe colection is a tribute to the traditional pitchers of the regions of tonala and tlaquepaque in jalisco, these two regions developed during the period of the conquest as pottery centers. Originally these bottles were used to store water in addition to keeping it a few degrees below room temperature, their low temperature cooking allows the jug to breathe water and this in contact with the outside air cools the jug and therefore the liquid inside. To avoid moisture stains on the surfaces where the jug is placed, a plate is placed. The jugs were usually decorated with paintings around the body of the bottle, the most common are lines that border the circumference. In general, a glass of the same material will also serve as a lid to avoid insects inside the bottle. In memory of the traditional carafe, we preserve the general shape, spherical with a short neck, the decoration is concentrated in color and a horizontal line that borders the sphere, simulating the lines painted in the traditional version and in turn uniting the idea of the plate. In which the plate was used to avoid stains, this line is revealed to the touch and the lighting that the object receives, creating a game of volumes that reinforces the piece with stability. This object that until recently could be seen commonly in the kitchens of the houses in the center of guadalajara is an element that recalls the warm climate and the artisan work of the region. For the world wide contemporary kitchens. This item is made of ceramic, pottery, high temperature ceramic, glazed pottery and glazed ceramic.
