Mug from the INLAY collection, handmade by Lisa Allegra in her workshop in Barcelona. With its POLVO motif, it encrusts colored earth dust in chamotte sandstone.
Born in 1986 in Paris, Lisa Allegra graduated from the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg in object design. After collaborating with various Parisian design studios and editing the ITA coat rack, in 2012 she set off on a trip around the world (Asia, United States, Brazil) for almost a year.
It was during her studies at Decorative Arts that she was introduced to ceramics.
She returns to this material with the desire to correlate her work as an object designer with an ancestral know-how: clay modeling.
She then mounts and glues the earthen slabs to each other like sheets of paper. it is moreover with the help of paper models that she has developed each piece and worked on the volumes of her collection.
