The cutting station is a piece for plant lovers. It consists of two parts: an opaque container that encourages root development - even though we tend to put our cuttings in a glass container to see the roots, we give them an extra boost in the dark by simulating natural conditions underground - and a drilled cup. The cup holds the leaves in place and prevents them from rotting.
This piece is handmade on a pyrite stoneware potter's wheel and glazed on the inside with a transparent glaze.
- Glass: Height 9 cm, Diameter 7 cm
- Dish: Height: 3 cm, Diameter 8 cm, Hole diameter: 1,5 cm
- Each piece is made entirely by hand and is, therefore, unique. As with any handcrafted product, this piece may have slight variations in shape, color, and thickness from the visual.
A word from Stephanie
When you love plants, you are quickly led to cut them or germinate a seed. I've always done this in various glasses, but after a while, the glass doesn't look the same anymore. It's filled with limestone! When I discovered the Clarina Ceramics cutting stations, I knew that it would become a must in our house.
About the brand
After her experience in a Parisian art gallery, Clara had this desire to touch the material and create with her hands. She chooses ceramics because it allows her to make a link between tradition and modernity, between the world of art and craft.
Since 2018, she has been making utilitarian and decorative jewelry and ceramics inspired by the history of art and architecture. Her influences are very varied, sometimes in opposition. She is inspired by the bright colors and playful design of Ettore Sottsass, the beauty of the raw materials of Eduardo Chillida's pieces, the rigor and minimalism of the Bauhaus School, and the plastic and poetic world of Jean Arp.
This aesthetic vocation remains at the service of its practical use. Each piece is thought and designed for daily use and is adapted to food use. Clara works mainly with white stoneware, black stoneware, and porcelain on a potter's wheel and she makes her own glazes, which allows her to master the design of a piece from start to finish.
