thumb waterer

Watered With Love
This innovative watering can from ceramicists Jo-Anne and Gerald Warren transforms plant watering from a single gush of water into a gentle spring rain. Instead of a spout, it spreads the water pressure out like a shower head through a number of small holes in its base. Fill the vessel by dipping it into water, keeping the water inside by simply placing your thumb over the top opening. You’ll create a vacuum that holds its contents in place until you’re holding it over your thirsty flowerbed. Release your thumb and watch the water sprinkle onto your plants.

clay self watering can

image


Clay is a self-watering can ceramics.
The microporous structure of the fired ceramic at a relatively low temperature allows the water to infiltrate through the wall of the object. The water´s path ends at the roots of the plant which absorbs its required nutrients. The chromatic relationship with the pot on which the watering can rests allows it to integrate into space and to blend itself to the environment.

bricola

Brickola / Alcarol

In Venice, paline and bricole (group of three paline) are timber poles, planted in the Laguna seabed. The bricole’s external surface is left intentionally intact, in order for the markings left by tides and molluscs to act as reminders of the Venetian sojourn of this characteristic recovered timber. All parts sawn from bricola poles undergo accurate and painstaking washing, cleaning, drying and disinfection procedures and they are finally protected by a thin layer of beeswax.

new manantial

Me Manantial / Martin Azua


Manantial is an invitation to discover and get to know natural processes. It proposes the reproduction of an ecosystem by means of soil, stones and plants able to give back to water its natural balance. It is not an easy task, it takes time and dedication, maybe a whole life.
Like water drops which fall in the interior of a cave purified and enriched by the life cycle of water
Designed by Martín Azúa and made with the collaboration of the ceramist Marc Vidal.

waterfall

waterfall/ tokujin yoshioka

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has developed ‘waterfall’, the world’s largest optical glass table. In form it is a 4.5 meter giant optical glass block which reminds one of water running down the surface of a sheer cliff. The piece was originally developed for a private gallery located in the heart of Tokyo in 2006, and drew from his earlier 2002 project, ‘water block’.

My materials are liquid, and fit with the nature of our time. to me beauty means being unique, to be different, –
I like beauty full of mistakes because we are human. Perfection is for machines, it is obsolete, gone.

pure filtering

pure filtering/ lukasjager


By adding fine sawdust to the clay mixture, the form is able to kill harmful bacteria. The sawdust burns during the firing process so the shell is porous and water can filter quickly. The drops which collect on the bottom seep through the holes to the outside. By additionally adding colloidal silver, the filter kills bacteria and increases the shelf life of the filtered water.

water mimicking carafe

water mimicking carafe/ nocc studio

«This smooth pebble shaped carafe has on its inside a crystal formation reminiscent of those found inside geodes. When pouring, the water contained in the carafe slowly streams through the crystal formation in the same way it would coming out of a cave. The crystals give the water a nature inspired dynamic as it also purifies it on its way to the glass. »

As water drips down from the wet umbrella, it flows down through a perforation into the base feeding the soil and allowing the grass to grow. The smaller container includes a fast growing grass seed.
