Constance Guisset. Canova collection, puffed-up plates for Moustache

The designer Constance Guisset launched a collection of sculptural plates created for the brand Moustache during the design and lifestyle event Maison et Objet 2017.

Though they give the sensation of being soft at the touch and flexible, the plates are actually made out of ceramic. Each one of the pieces that make the set are molded by hand and then dyed in five colors – green, water mint, burgundy, white and light pink.

“Canova is a collection of trompe-l’oeil plates, a tribute to sculpture. Their shapes were first carefully modelled by hand. This patient work creates an illusion of smoothness in the lively and tense matter of the ceramics,” said Guisset.
