one year after the hugely successful ‘seams’ range, benjamin hubert and bitossi ceramiche come together once again for the ‘canisters’ collection. the earthenwares are the result of the benjamin hubert’s research into creating exciting, mass-produced objects by using and manipulating traditional ceramic processes. the distinct, decorative seams present on the exterior of each piece is due to intricate arrangements of slip cast molds. rather than clean the lines from the product, as would be normal practice, they’re left to become the collection’s principle characteristic. to finish, the archetypal industrial canister forms are aesthetically softened by toned-down pastel colors and matte glazes.
