Atelier Halo

Atelier Halo is a French porcelain company with a Japanese aesthetic. It is run by designer Fanny Cavin who creates objects that are simple and useful, but are also aesthetically pleasing and play with the light.

She uses the technique of slipcasting or stamping the porcelain into pre-made moulds. Once taken out of the moulds, she hand engraves a pattern onto the object which means that each piece is unique. The objects she produces are quite thin so that where she engraves, it becomes almost translucent and light can penetrate the pattern. She also uses an oxide pencil to create some of her designs and this is where the Japanese influence shows. It reminds me of the indigo-dyed items that can be found here in Japan.

You can see more of her beautiful work here.
