I discovered these two ladies last year at the Salone where Diesel would serve their coffee with their cups and you could buy them afterwards. Smart idea but I didn’t take any with me and always regretted it.
This year they Alissa and Nienke seem to have grown a lot showcasing their own space at Ventura Lambrate at the Off-Salone with a working area where you could observe the whole process of making their beautiful marbled cups.
So, they manage to do about 20 pieces a day and can use every plaster mould like a 100 times until they have to do new ones. It is porcelain mixed with pigments and after a first firing they apply a transparent glaze which then goes to a second firing. Every piece is unique and you know how much I love this idea!
This year I haven’t I didn’t hesitate a second and got this beautiful cup with me!
