Since its beginnings he has constantly perfected his pieces, both in form and technique. His works are a benchmark in quality and internationally recognized. The secret is the dedication to the modern adaptation of the traditional methods.
Innovation is present in the search for new designs and challenges. For Eric, the fact of manually elaborating each one of his pieces allows to connect with the past. It thus prints the timeless stamp of the artist, resulting in a unique piece. In addition, it presents a careful aesthetic, coherent in each one of the elements. These values are transmitted in all phases of communication: web, social profiles, workshops, exhibitions …

The Australian Susan Simonini is one of the ceramic designers that we must follow closely. With a long experience as a painter, decided in 2013 start with the pottery.
