THREESOME CERAMICS

LOGO DESIGN, PACKAGING, 2017

Threesome Ceramics is a workshop located in Athens initiated by friends in order to house their love for ceramic art. Their work is unique and personal, reflecting their passion of using clay as a narrative, but also as a means to explore, interact and communicate.

The difficulties in designing packaging for handmade ceramics are evident. Starting from the obvious, fragility.

This is true for any ceramic object, smaller or bigger. And there lays a bigger setback. Threesome Ceramics needed to pack objects that varry in size and shape. In order to tackle these inherent predicaments, we needed to think out of the box. Our intention was to find a solution unlike anything, focusing on both those aspects, and furthermore, to challenge the perception of packaging, extending it’s usability and conveying the joy one indulges in when interacting with raw materials such as clay.

Inspired by the use of grid in architecture and aiming to an immediate impact, the use of triangular geodesic pattern was the single modular resolution needed. The packaging creates a formless, cocoon like container that can be adapted to hold objects of varying configurations. The delicate products are secured into place by applying pressure along key points of the engraved surface, while the variance of it's form results naturaly depending on the contained object and aspiring to reflect the aura handmade objects carry. The colour of terracotta complements the content.

 

Like playing with a lump of clay, there is no right way to shape it.
