Tortoise Shell

"The colors in this collection vary from blue tones to a white glaze at the bottom. The different blue tones create a beautiful cascade looking effect with lighter blue tones. The glaze creates a tone of green framing the edges."


Oblique is a refined collection that features faceted and sharp edges. The patterns on these pieces are derived from the geometric formations found in diamonds, mountain ranges and the crystalline structures of the snowflake. Much like their natural counterparts, each unique piece in the oblique collection is the perfect way to bring an element of raw beauty to any space. While we begin the design process using an advanced computational algorithm, oblique travels a long way before it reaches it's final state. After being slip-cast to receive flawless edges, the pieces are hand glazed and baked in the kiln. It is at this stage that they undergo a reactive metamorphosis that brings them to life. Their slanted edges react with the molten glaze in a way that is truly unpredictable. After cooling they have finally become oblique. Matte green tones cover the first pattern while lighter green highlights emphasize the pattern shape. The glaze cascades along the second pattern changing the color to matte blue.
