Luis Torres Ceramics, who works in our pottery studio in La Rambla, Cordoba, is the artisan behind these remarkable bow ties. Being an enthusiastic about design and fashion, this idea came to his mind while looking for original accesories to match his suits in the many friend’s weddings he is invited to. He wanted to design his own bow ties, and as a ceramist he is, ceramic bow ties wast the best option.

You can see how he tells us about it in the following video:

Luis Torres Ceramics, second generation of potters in his family, follows his father, the master artisan Miguel Ángel Torres Ferreras, in his pottery profession and adds up a touch of innovation with his ceramic bow ties. Besides, as his father does, he uses resistant stoneware in his original bow ties, making them of a great quality and  a high-end typical of the high-fired ceramics.  Therefore, apart from being a fine object of craftwork, it is a convenient fashion accesory which is not easily broken or cracked. The weight is also surprising, as they do not weigh more than 30-40gr. Becasue of this, and the fact that they are sewed by hand to a clothing band, they are comfortable and easy to wear.

There are more than 12 different designs, all of them inspired by La Rambla, the nature in the countryside around it and the work of potters and painters in this small village, whose work has located La Rambla in the World map of ceramics. The decoration and design of every one of them is a tribute to the craftwork from La Rambla and Cordoba, the landscapes of the southern countryside of Spain, the main ingredients in Andalusian dishes, the Andalusian patios and streets, even the Andalusian accent.

Besides, they are limited series of 100 pieces per design, which makes every Bowtery an authentic collector’s item. A unique piece which gathers craftmanship, fashion, utility and collecting. Every Bowtery is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity with the series number.

However, one of the most interesting parts of this project is the fact that these stoneware bow ties can be custom-made. Grooms who want to wear something special and unique, artists who wish to wear a special accessory in their events, original presents, or simply love of art are the main causes why Luis Torres is asked to take pencil and watercolours and design unique and custom-made bow ties.

And why ‘Bowtery’? It is a pun with  “pottery” and “bow tie“. The brand itself intends to make it clear that these bow ties are synonym of craftwork and pottery, whose moulds and 3D printers are the hands of the potter who creates them.

Crisalida Flowerpots

Exclusive design flowerpots to pay tribute to the Patios Festival in Cordoba, Spain.

CoCeR-Ceramics Association from La Rambla, together with the online shop Cerámica Rambleña, have launched an art project in which a number of potters, ceramists and painters from La Rambla (Cordoba) have designed and made by hand different unique hanging flowerpots to honour the well-known Patios Festival in Cordoba, recently declared as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

The proposals of ceramist Luis Torres are two designs inspired in the chrysalis (“crisálida” in Spanish language) with two different decorative treatments.

Pointed Crisalida Pot

The Crisalida Pot is made by Miguel Angel Torres Ferreras on the potter’s wheel. After making it on the wheel, Luis Torres models it till it has a chrysalis shape and it is left to dry untill it becomes leather hard. In this state, the clay is still wet but not elastic, although it is the perfect hardness to add textures. You can see how it is made in the following picture:

Once it gets the perfect hardness as said before, ceramist Luis Torres adds the different textures. Ont he one hand, the pointed Crisalida Pot is made by adding clay points which are made by hand. On the other hand, the facets Crisalida Pot is made by cutting the surface with a sharp knight.
