Description

A set of a porcelain carafe and shot cups conceptualised over numerous visits to the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.

Gotland has a rich abundance of sedimentary rocks that were deposited some 440 million years ago during the Silurian age when a warm, shallow, salty ocean covered the area. These rocks now stand as unique and unusual ancient rock formations that scatter across the island’s land and shores. Not only producing a dramatic visual landscape, the rock is used extensively in the island’s building and infrastructure industry.

The collection “A Shallow and Salty Ocean” is a homage to Gotland’s geographical and industrial heritage. Moulds were taken from select fragments of limestone and cast in fine porcelain resulting in an ongoing series of vessels. The intricate stone texture and sharp, aggressive crystalline structure makes drinking with these pieces a unique experience, being as much sculptural as they are functional.

Slip cast in porcelain with raw exterior and internally glazed. Set consists of carafe with lid and four shot cups of two variants.

Craig Barrow
Craig Barrow is a designer working in the areas of object and sculpture.   Seeing design as responses to the world’s curiosities and shared relationships, his body of work stems from material exploration and production processes, observations of human interaction with objects and scientific and natural phenomena, often in which are manipulated, imitated or, in part or full, reproduced to guide the final forms of his works.   Craig takes a hands-on approach within his practice; material understanding and experimentation are a key factor, in combination with scientific and cultural research.   Born in Nottingham, UK, he studied 3D Design at the University of Brighton. He now lives and works in Berlin.
