august design studio ceramics and design objects for everyday use
We first started to talk about our cooperation in August; lazy, hot and calm. We both decided that careful observation of human beings and their surroundings, the functionality of objects, and above all, the simple joys will become the core of our design philosophy. Our goal is to create beautiful, modern objects, however, we use traditional techniques. While collaborating with craftsmen, we make sure that both sides learn something from each other.
