Santimetre: Porcelain Turkish Coffee PotsPosted: March 5, 2012
Santimetre, a studio based in Ayvalık (Turkey), designs handmade objects largely focused in porcelain. Their unique Turkish Coffee Pots reference the traditional pot’s shape but add modern elements through the material and varied color choices. Using olive tree sprig handles, the pots combine the sensual features of fine porcelain with nature’s more haphazard and quirky features creating a playful object that reminds us of our connection to nature through that which nourishes us. The handles also question the state of a “finished” material in an end-product and, in this case, show that raw beauty can be relevant in modern design.
