As the name suggests, the designer Anita Le Grelle is trending more and more towards the great outdoors with her new collection. Rural, organic shapes and materials provide her with an endless source of inspiration. “RUR:AL is rougher than my previous work; the tableware has not been enamelled on the outside, giving it a texture much closer to that of trees or from the earth," says Le Grelle.
For Le Grelle, this is a new chapter and one whereby there is a clear link to her other passion: sculpture. “I like to draw inspiration from nature, both as a ceramicist but also as a sculptor,” explains Le Grelle, which could also count on nature for the special colour of this collection. “I call it ‘duck green’,” a green tint that also contains a lot of blue, just like the tail of a duck.” RUR:AL denotes both "rural" and the initials A.L. from its designer. It's not a snapshot, nor a quick snack. "This is a new path that I'm taking and with which I want to experiment much further for the next few years." It is no doubt to be continued.
