PONTE BENCH by Alan Louis
Ponte bench, Alan Louis.
The Ponte bench is made of ceramic, handmade from chamotte clay (containing grains of sand). The clay is fired between two and three times at temperatures between 800 and 1400 degrees, a process which solidifies the clay, making the table as bench as if it were made of stone...
It is through a work of assembly, modeling, sculpture and the different firings that the tables come to life. Clay is an almost "living" material due to the changes in the material between drying and firing. This make the curves slightly irregular and the dimensions may vary slightly. Each table is unique.
The cushion is made of white looped fabric and is entirely hand-sewn.
Each bench is numbered and signed by the designer.
Made in Portugal.
