Pedro Santos Atelier (PT)
and the pursuit of translucency!
Pedro Santos Atelier is a design brand, launched in 2013, aimed at the development and production of exclusive ceramic pieces. The creations are made of porcelain, usually white and translucent, giving them a minimalist and timeless character.
Whether it is unique pieces or limited series, all procedures are handcrafted, which requires time, dedication and resilience.
Pyroplastic deformation, cracks and imperfections naturally arise and should be understood as the identifying marks of a craft process that seeks dimensions at the material fatigue threshold and reduced thicknesses in the pursuit of whiteness and translucency.
Exploring the boundaries of porcelain, in a highly manual and artistic process, is “walking the razor's edge”, where the results are sometimes unexpected and transcendent.
