“Abandoned Earth” is a range of handmade, low-impact plates, produced using 100% waste materials, collected, made and fired in Germany. Damaged packaging compiled with an easy access and the availability of clay contribute to large quantities of the material being wasted on regular basis. As the clay begins to dry out, it becomes less attractive and difficult to work with but once enriched with water, the original quality restores.
The plates are made from randomly arranged and layered mixes, thus contributing to unique products as playful as their original concept. Each top plate is then glazed with translucent white to soften the colour patterns and bring calmness to the objects and the plates bottom is left raw, varying in colour. The plates are divided into 3 man colour categories – ivory, beige and dark brown.
“Not made in China“ is another symbolical phrase used by the studio to point at the issue of unnecessary large productions that are then shipped across the globe, causing further damage and pollution.
