Jean and Dylan of Ladies and Gentlemen Studio were fascinated by the textures and colors in the workshop of João Lourenço and the unexpected colors and tones that reveal when metal salts were mixed and fired. They used simple, friendly forms to complement these most iconic elements of the design, and the result are two ikebana vases, made of Pasta Grés Chamotada cooked at 1000oC, in two shapes and sizes and a variety of colors.

Origin curates and produces a line of contemporary objects by bringing designers and artisans together. We invite our designers to Portugal once a year to work with local craftsmen and visit ateliers in different towns, sharing a house and meals together. All of our objects are completely or partially handmade. We work with both individual craftsmen as well as small factories to realize our designs in numbered editions.
We publish the names of our makers, not just the names of designers, because we want to do things differently, to remind ourselves that each Origin product is made by a person who could be a father, a mother, a grandfather or a daughter... something we tend to forget in our consumption-driven culture. Our goal is to foster a deeper sense of closeness between the owner of our object, and the people who made it.
Delivery time: Between 1 - 4 weeks, depending on stock and availability.
