The surface of this side table is made of ceramic tiles which are arranged in a geometric pattern. Each tile is produced and glazed by hand with a specific glazing technique. The watercolour-like way of applying the glaze is based on the traditional ‘’Mocha diffusion’’ that originated in England in the 18th century, based on a chemical reaction between the liquid glazes and acid: it consists of mixing an acid solution of vinegar or tobacco juice and colouring oxides with the glazes. Under the influence of blown air the colours turn into smoke-like organic patterns which are solidified in the last heat of the kiln.
