Tableware for Japanese restaurant in Talinn, Estonia


Item details

A range of tableware including plates, sake cups and bottles, soup bowls and pickle bowls were produced for a local Japanese restaurant specialising in yakitori. The pieces were crafted keeping in mind the overall design and ambience of the restaurant. The material of choice was a grey stoneware which led to a more contemporary look but also lends a strength that is required for frequent use in the restaurant. The material also maintains temperature better, which worked in favour of the cooler sake cocktails.
The sake cups and bowls all have a rim bottom which is typical of Japanese ceramics, a style that I enjoy working with the most.

Handmade contemporary ceramics for restaurants and home

Hi, my name is Tiziana. I’m a Maltese ceramicist and I’ve been hooked on working with clay ever since I was 11. I love working with clay due to its versatility and tactile nature. I am spurred on by curiosity and love to experiment with different forms and glazes. I draw inspiration from nature and my foodie travels.

Mainly self-taught, I’ve worked in studios in Edinburgh and East London. I love to try out different techniques including raku for my sculptures, and anagama for vases. I work mainly on the pottery wheel, and my favorite material to use is stoneware. All tableware pieces are food and dishwasher safe.

A recent throwing course I attended at La Meridiana Ceramic School in Italy has enabled me to cultivate my technique on throwing larger forms.

I am currently based in Tallinn, where I produce tableware for restaurants and cafes, as well as home-ware items which are sold in a few stores in Tallinn, London and Malta. I love to collaborate with chefs and food enthusiasts on projects such as pop-up supper clubs in London - Edit Supper Club.
