How it's made.

Terrazzo style interior objects made by hand.

Sevak's current collection is a terrazzo style porcelain made into interiors objects and accessories. The porcelain used is called Parian, named after Paros, the Greek island famed for its fine textured white Parian marble, and once polished has a cool marble-like finish. This gives the objects a high quality tactile finish and sheen that set's it apart from other clays.

Chips of coloured porcelain (grog) are mixed into the parian clay and slip cast, where the liquid clay is poured into a plaster mould and poured back out, leaving the shape formed in solid clay. After their first firing in a kiln they are sanded down to reveal the random pattern and fired once again much higher to bring out the true colour and seal the surface. Because of this process, each piece is truly unique and differs slightly from the rest, giving you a beautiful object with no twin.
