Item details

The inspiration for the Cosmos centre piece came from a hollowed-out pumpkin from West Africa which I stumbled upon in a second-hand shop in Central London. The dried pumpkin that had been used to carry water, was both practical and exquisite. Moved by this vessel, I sought to create a similarly stunning object that was both functional and beautiful. Cosmos represents water and the existence of life on Earth. Water is essential for life, and it is the key element which defines our planet and our place within the solar system. We all come from water and at the same time we are all stardust. Cosmos is a hand-made stoneware piece, texturized with Japanese wooden tools and layered with oxides and glazes to create the feeling of flowing water. Cosmos is a functional art piece designed for daily use.

Fariceramics is a contemporary, London-based pottery studio. Japanese inspired functional art and beautiful designs for everyday use. Stoneware clay, with rustic and natural color patterns. Timeless beauty in your hands.

I was born in Asturias, a northern Spanish province filled with wild spaces. My work echoes the rough qualities found throughout Asturias’ rugged cliffs, plush vegetation and seaside beaches. With eddies of greens, blues and earthy browns, every piece is unique, even when part of a series.
My vision is to create beautiful, functional art for everyday use. Some rustic, others refined, but always a pleasure to hold and feel. All my creations are made by hand—some wheel thrown, others carefully hand built. I seek to embed each piece with both a sense of artistic creation and daily utility.
