Two new Containers have been added, conceived along the formal lines of the entire “Tonale" series that are based on truncated-conical volumes. They are simple, archetypal forms: a circular disk forms the base, varying in diameter; the sides are tapered (in reality, truncated cones) and come in two different heights. Special attention has been paid to the surface finishes: matte on the exterior, for a comfortable grip and glazed on the inside for ease of cleaning. The Containers are in Stoneware and available in two colours from the existing range of greys in the “Tonale" series. The Containers are fitted with a silicon stopper for use with foodstuffs making it suitable for conserving and protecting wine and other beverages. The stopper’s truncated-cone shape fits snugly in the mouth of the carafe, even given the exacting tolerances required by ceramics. The material used for the stopper, as well as its red colour, give the object a sophisticated importance. With the stopper removed, these containers can also be used as a utensil holder or flower vase.
