Evdokia Savv
Undercut Terracotta Tableware

As a young Cypriot ceramist and designer, Evdokia aims to sensitively revive the traditional terracotta tableware of Cyprus with a new aesthetic drawn from the traditional context. Reviving cultural knowledge embedded in crafts skills this project introduces a contemporary terracotta tableware range for the everyday, for the domestic Cypriot market and the newly engaged international diasporas.

Inspired by the traditional Cypriot motifs, Evdokia has created contemporary surface patterns that compliment the shapes of the dishes and create a fine composition. The key aspect of the series is the undercut, which works both as a functional element as well as an aesthetic feature; in addition it lifts the dishes off the surface. The Undercut Terracotta Tableware Service exists in two ranges: Simple Classic Undercut White and an evocative range of subtle shades reminiscent of Cyprus in the Undercut Colour Gradient. Each range echoes the cultural cuisine of Cyprus encouraging socializing and generous hospitality with four dish sizes: for sauce, meze, sides and a large dish, together with a bespoke thrown sharing platter.
