Drinking bowls set of 6 with saucer

Ceramic, sand and black, Summer Cycle 2023

Loading... incl. taxes
Gift wrapping:


This classic pairing, a drinking bowl and its accompanying saucer, acquires a poetic allure. The textured stoneware beautifully complements the duos delicate appearance. Individually crafted, each creation is adorned with black engobe, creating an additional interplay between materials, colours and forms. Crafted individually, each piece embodies a unique form and identity, shaped by the artist‘s intellectual and physical interaction during its creation. Designed to nestle effortlessly in your hands, it promises an experience that balances comfort with aesthetic pleasure.


Borne of our collaboration with Helga as part of the Summer Cycle 2023, this set of six is a limited edition that wont be reproduced.

Crafted entirely by Helga’s hands on the potter‘s wheel, each piece is unique, without any possibility of replication. Skilfully crafted, this stoneware piece gains its lasting strength during oxidation firing at 1,340°.

This piece features an accompanying black thread, a recurring motif in Helga Ritsch’s work. This unexpected object of daily use seamlessly integrates with the vessel and adds more character to it. Over time, this delicate decorative element might detach itself from the vessel – a “loss” that isnt truly a loss, as it symbolises your ongoing appreciation and use of the piece.

Each vessel bears the artist’s signature and stamp, and is created at her atelier, located within her 400-year-old home in Soazza, a village of just over 300 inhabitants nestled in the Swiss mountains.

Each bowl: 105 g, height 50 mm, diameter 100 mm; each saucer: 114 g, height 10mm, diameter 100mm


This set is dishwasher safe. However, once you hold your piece in your hands, you will probably prefer to care for it personally. We recommend handwashing it gently with a soft sponge and thoroughly drying it. Do not wash it with any cleansing agents and avoid using abrasive sponges. It must not be directly exposed to temperature shocks, whether from a flame, conventional oven, microwave, induction cooktop, freezer, refrigerator or other source of heat or cold. Avoid any shocks or friction. If you care for it, it will last a lifetime and beyond, unless it is accidentally dropped or shattered. Over time, this unglazed piece may develop a distinct patina, a natural transformation influenced by its purpose and usage. Evolving at its own unhurried pace, this process enriches your piece, rendering it truly one of a kind.

Every stoneware object is meticulously packaged to ensure its safe delivery. In the rare event of any cracks occurring during shipping, please contact us within a week of delivery.
