Grand blanc II
The Istantanee collection is research that sinks its hands into the Mediterranean Sea and has ideally brought back out of the water objects that, in the designer’s vision, inhabit the polaroid of a day at the sea, heading south.
For this triptych of objects, the designer reworked the shape of the basin to transform it into a large container, suspended in time like a salt sculpture that wants to resist the sirocco wind.
The geometric shapes have worn away, have become more organic and allow a glimpse of the irregular structure. The upper part, which can contain objects, liquids and vegetables, is supported by a solid base, like a stone planted in sand.
White earth fired at 1020° and glossy white enamel annealed at 950°.
*All enamels are lead-free and suitable for foodstuffs.
Measurements: H.16 cm, L.27 cm

Roberto Aponte, born in 1988, is an artist from Milan by adoption and Naples by origin who, after a training course at the Faculty of Industrial Design in Rome, a master’s degree in exhibition design at the Politecnico di Milano and a long experience in retail installations and photo shoots, in 2019 meets ceramics.
During the lockdown, he returns to the Amalfi Coast, to Vietri sul Mare, a ceramic centre for the production of majolica, where he spends a few months to deepen and learn the various techniques from a master ceramist. In 2020 he opened his own studio, Spazio Martín, together with a painter (Miss Goffetown, which you can find in the art&mag section of our shop) and an architect: a place open to welcoming the work of others but also a container of experience, dialogue and ideas. A space, a gallery, the extension of her private space.
He currently works in a ceramics workshop in Milan, where she also makes the wonderful pieces you can find in the Homeware section of our shop.
