MCO3 Portobello — Blue Ash
Mattiazzi by Julie Richoz

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

Portobello is a simple bowl but with a twist. Something between a tray and a bowl. It is not too loud, but not too plain either. It is even decorative. Decoration that arises from the making process, and using a constructive logic. This is probably where it finds its balance.

"What interests me is the savoir-faire, the precision in the way materials are employed, and that things are done with passion. I’m not so preoccupied by the division of the objects between those that are for everyday and those which are not. Something you’re happy to use and live with everyday is probably my definition of a good object. You can convey the same sensations, sensibility and vision of the world whatever the context is. But I’m not pre-occupied with archetypes. An unfamiliar object can still become a good everyday companion."
