glazed red clay,
handmanufactured by Paulo Oscar
Clay, a material normally associated with accessories,
decoration or art, has much more to give to the world
than cups, mugs, plates and jars. And for the
design scene, handmanufacture should be able to add
values to the object, the ones that industry is not able
to, but keeping it far away from the experimentation and
metafors. At this level art is doing great. And to succeed,
design should focuse on its main core: usability.
Handmaded pottery on the wheel has always one main
characteristic: every object is turned around one axis
which makes it circular.
