Terra crua


Based on the making technique used for Adobe bricks (a mixture of clay and natural fibers which are shaped into bricks and dried in the sun), Terra crua explores the formal and structural possibilities of unfired clay. Using fabric as a mould, mud can flow more freely and take the shape it is naturally inclined to.The material research was made together with the maker Benedetta Pompili, with whom we explored several bio-based waterproof coatings, such as beeswax, crushed sea shells and eggshells.
