max lamb’s crockery in black basalt is formed using the tools of a stone mason

 

 

max lamb has extended his white ‘crockery’ fine bone collection for 1882 ltd with a range of tableware pieces rendered in a contrasting  jet black palette of basalt. the range of bowls, plates, cups, salt and pepper shakers, vases and a carafe are each slip-cast from plaster models that have been carved by hand. using the tools of a stone mason, lamb chipped away at a solid block of plaster to create the unique forms, which retain the marks left by the implements, resulting in a rough surface reminiscent of rocks. the designs all feature glazed interiors for functionality, with the exterior left raw, reflecting the modest surface texture of the plaster mould original.

 

the ‘crockery’ in black basalt is available exclusively at SCP.
