In this collection we have worked with new materials like terrazzo stone, sustainable woods and iron to add texture to ZAKKIA’S iconic clean shapes. We collaborated with our makers to source unique natural materials that highlight each design and bring to life the special quality of the handmade process.
We have extended our Raw cermamic designs to include rounded vases and pouring bottles. The raw finish is a specialty of our maker in northern Vietnam, where their family has been handcrafting ceramics for over 900 years. The glossy internal glaze in contrast to the raw outer is what gives the Raw collection it’s distinctive tactile quality.
The organically patterned finish on our Speckle ceramics is the result of the natural reaction to the clay in the kilning process. We work with a traditional cubed kiln which allows for more heat variation during firing , and it’s really because of this variation that each handcrafted piece is like no other. In 2016:02 we have introduced a striking Bottle and Jug along with three sizes of Speckle Serving Platters.
