A breakfast set fit for the mountainside

When product designer Francisco Jaramillo of Fango Studio began to experiment with different natural glazes and pigments in his ceramics, he realized that ingredients like milk and corn husk secreted different oils that sealed his products beautifully.

His breakfast set recalls the traditional Colombian “breakfast on the mountain” from the Antioquia region, with pieces that correspond to the meal’s four principal elements: arepa (a traditional corn flour tortilla), eggs, milk, and fruit and flowers. Each object is hand-sculpted in ceramic and glazed with elements recalling the vessel’s contents, resulting in rare textures.

In this way, the milk bottle is finished with a glaze made from milk while the arepa tray uses a corn husk in its mixture and the flower and fruit tray is interposed with the same burlap bag used to transport these goods in the field. facebook.com/fangostudio
