Silt Set by Gautier Pelegrin

Name: Silt Set

Designer: Gautier Pelegrin

Location: London, England

Year: 2013

Silt Set is a minimalist design created by England-based designer Gautier Pelegrin. Silt is a small collection of jugs and cups, using the traditional material of unglazed Purple Clay, more commonly used for the tiny and elaborate teapots in China to serve green tea. This unglazed material has the effect of softening the taste of the water in the same way as activated charcoal. This occurs whether you are serving tea, coffee water or wine and as purple clay is a completely natural material, each piece will be unique and differ slightly in colour. The collection has been developed with the Taiwanese company Lin’s Ceramics Studio, using their particular brand of Purion ware, which is twice fired.
