By combining water, clay and sand, man was able to invent mortar, cement and concrete. These elements of our daily life and our homes, stem from the unprocessed material.
The FCK plates are made in Portugal by skilled craftsmen from a rare clay variety that designer Frédérick Gautier has found in France, having the specific gray color he envisioned for his 'céramique de béton'. After a first bake, the plates are glazed with a semi-reactive glaze and baked again. The result is a robust plate with an earthy color chosen by Frédérick and deliberately not homogeneous in color, to emphasize the artisanal character. No two plates are the same!
