Plant pot I
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.
Terracotta is a mixture of clayey earth and water that is moulded by hand, left to dry in the air and fired at high temperatures. Terracotta containers are ancestral, primitive objects and I wanted to pursue this image to shape the plant pots.
The pot is unglazed to preserve its integrity as an object in its primordial state and has a hole for draining water. Unglazed coarse-grained red stoneware fired at 980°.
Size: H.20 cm – L.20 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.
