The team of Hotel Balcón de Córdoba visited us in our pottery studio in La Rambla, Cordoba,to meet us in person and see our pieces live. According to them, it was us what they were looking for and they wanted to transmit us their philosophy and decorative ideas so that we could know how to design a suitable flatware for them. Therefore, we chose light shapes, fine, smart and cool color finishing with a touch of joy and motivation. para conocernos personalmente y ver nuestras piezas en primera persona. Water, leaves and fresh air are the elements of Patios of Cordoba, which inspired us to design and make and glaze these mint and blue colour plates.
Of course, as usual, our customer restaurants come to us looking for, appart from customizable design, the quality that our oven and dishwasher safe stoneware provides. Besides, although all our pieces are handmade and different one from each other, we take much into account the ergonomics and storing capacity of our plates and bowls, as it is fundamental for restaurants that plates are easily stacked and take as little space as possible in chefs’ kitchen.
Seriously, in case you have the chance, please go and visit this magnificent restaurant because it is a pleasure for our five senses, in a perfect example of ancestral cordoban character.
