PLANET TO PLATE
Stoneware For Storytellers
Palinopsia is changing the game of sustainable stoneware. Handmade by contemporary ceramic artisans on the west coast of Portugal – these unique, purposeful pieces are pushing back on disposability culture. Their artists ‘make for keeps’ using humble ingredients: earth, air, fire and water.
The Portuguese have been working with clay since pre-historic times and are now turning this ancient heritage into new forms of art for your tableware. As creating beautiful, nourishing meals at home becomes ever so crucial – these handmade ceramics have stories baked into them, each a one-and-only, with the swagger of signature style.
A brand that encapsulates the philosophy of ‘planet to plate’, Palinopsia is focused on environmental and social influence from inception to design, right through to delivery. Entirely unique in their approach, each piece is a true collector’s item. Something to be coveted, a range that is swayed by hot kiln chemistry and celebrates variety.
The term Palinopsia stems from ancient Greek literature and refers to a rare state where you keep seeing an object, long after you’ve stopped looking at it. It’s about lasting impressions, and so are their collections.
Palinopsia’s founder Tamara Bajic discusses some key values that helped shape her vision for the brand:
“It begins and ends as mud, and we meditate on everything that can happen in between. It was important for us to work with communities that have been shaping clay since the very beginning. Further, our desire to work with partners that will have an open ongoing discussion about their environmental and social influence”.
Palinopsia encourages placemaking with conversational pieces whether it is for your home or restaurant. The range has been designed with organic shapes using reactive glazes and with everyday use in mind. Made by skilled people for culinary people.
