The ALBE Collection consists of kitchen containers, inspired by the edible mushrooms found on Romanian ground. Picking mushrooms after summer rainy days is an old habit in rural areas close to forests. These mushrooms have particular names, according to the areas where they grow. Sometimes their names are so amusing that we decided to keep them and try to express them in English (the result is according to the names). The only sure way to know which species of mushrooms we were talking about is to use their scientific Latin name. In this manner, anyone can identify a species and correlate it with its geographical area and naming.
All ceramic shapes are cast in custom made molds, fitted for porcelain. The caps are cork made, in different thicknesses and turned on the lathe.
