Artesano Ocean –
Bold and bright colours, as refreshing as a sea breeze
The breathtaking kaleidoscope of ocean colours captivates like no other natural phenomena – cool blue shades are refreshing, warm turquoise and petrol entice you into the water and in the evening, the setting sun immerses the oceans in a remarkable orange and red. Inspired by these bright ocean colours, Villeroy & Boch created three expressive colours – Atlantic Blue, Pacific Green and Red Sea – for Artesano Ocean. Their new take on a selection of the many colours of the ocean is bold and refreshing.
The Artesano Ocean decor features concentric circles, which have a calming and harmonious effect. Artesano Ocean is completely painted by hand, except for the plate rims as they are protected by a delicate, transparent layer of glaze. The manual application of the rough, structural glaze colour gives Artesano Ocean a very artisanal feel, underlining the original character of the range and award-winning shape.
Artesano Ocean does not have any spots or other disturbing factors, which rustic stoneware crockery often has. Artesano Ocean has a very modern and harmonious design concept with its circular impression and white rim, yet its style is based on classic pottery tradition.
In order not to overload the crockery with too many decorative details, the cups, which are usually served with a saucer, are the only products in the range with just a light splash of colour: a fine coloured fillet is painted on the inside rim of the white cups.
Artesano Ocean allows expressive coffee and dinner settings and attractive buffets – in just one colour or by mixing the three colours in the range. Artesano Ocean can be accompanied with pieces from the pure white Artesano Original range, which provides chefs with plenty of freedom to put their own stamp on their creations thanks to its simple and coherent design. Furthermore, Artesano Ocean is a perfect match for Artesano products made from acacia wood, cork, slate and glass.
