MATERIALS

Lavastone

Lavastone is extracted from the active volcano Etna on Sicily at a depth of 20 metres, where the stone has been compacted for about 2000 years. The lavastone is then glazed and decorated by hand and is transformed to ceramic by hours of oven-firing.

Lavastone is the only raw stone that can stand the heat and therefor that can be glazed.

Terracotta

Clay comes from a family owned production, an hour drive from Valencia. There, the File Under Pop tiles are crafted.
