Introducing AR Ceramics

Andrea Roman – a talented designer and friend – is the woman behind AR Ceramics, who we are happy to announce that we are now stocking here on Salutations!

Andrea comes from an industrial design background, having studied at Universidad Nacional Autónoma in her native Mexico, and Escola de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and this interest in design is obvious in her ceramics. Starting with the shape of her pieces, through to the texture and tones of the clays used and how they are finished, Andrea makes seemingly simple but well considered pieces. Her interest is in the clay itself, and glaze is used merely as a functional finish. We love that the plates stack, and wholly support her mix-and-match approach – the idea that you might collect different colours and sizes in the range over time, and use them together.

Over the past few months we've also been working together on something special – an object combining both candle holder and incense burner, exclusively for Salutations. It needed to both look good and work, and after some very dedicated testing we think Andrea's nailed it!
