ART IN CLAY
Alfajar is a family business founded in 1994 in Malaga, dedicated since then to the manufacture and sale of creative ceramics. Our approach to production has been, from the beginning, design, handcrafted production at all stages of the process and the sale of signature ceramics.
We consciously chose to differentiate ourselves from popular ceramics, although the pottery tradition is always present in the origin of our forms. Our product consists of pieces of stoneware, fireclay and other high-temperature ceramic bodies (1250o C) made with artisan techniques at all stages of production and painted by hand. The forms are inspired by traditional vessels from the different cultures that have populated the Mediterranean: Etruscan, Iberian, Mycenaean, Muslim, Greek and Roman, although they are treated with a coherence of style that implies a geometric stylisation of the silhouettes, a simplification of the volumes and structures. Each piece receives an individualised treatment that makes it a unique and unrepeatable work, with the handwritten signature of its author.
