Porcelain shapes refer to 13th century “pot tiles” produced in Eastern Europe. They are a tribute to that moment in the history of pottery, when the craftsman managed to clearly go beyond the pattern of the vessel, using an individual creation. The only decoration here is a striped chiaroscuro created as a result of traces of the potter’s fingers clearly left on the material. Tiles named Stereo [from the gr. stereós ‚constituting a solid’] through their three-dimensional, plasticity and spatiality show the uniqueness of each throwing movement.
