The richness of our lenticular designs is inspired by the fascinating shapes that nature offers. Shadows, volumes and textures acquire a peculiar way when working with earth and clay. All these pieces are 100% handmade in Malaga, Spain.
After 30 years of experience we can affirm that the objective of Alfajar is to express the inner relationship of each person with the world, and therefore, with the nature around them. In this case through pieces with curved and sinuous shapes that add beauty and warmth to the space.
A classic form of Alfajar.
All our lenticular pieces are inspired by the shapes of traditional ceramic from the different cultures that have populated the Mediterranean: Etruscan, Iberian, Mycenaean, Muslim, Greek and Roman, although treated with a coherence of style that implies a geometric stylization of the silhouettes and a simplification of volumes and structures.
Cubism and expressionism also play a very important role in our work. Our intention is to achieve that synthesis between the simplification of classical Mediterranean forms and the avant-garde of the 20th century, in this case applied to sculpture.
Within this variety there are stoneware and majolica pieces. The stoneware works have a unique surface treatment, made by hand with iron, manganese, cobalt oxides and ash glazes, combining wax reserve and sgraffito techniques. It is finished in a single firing at 1250º C in an oxidizing atmosphere. The majolica pieces fired at 1050º C, are decorated with ceramic pigments and glazed with transparent enamels at 980º C. This line allows us to have a vibrant wide color range. Each piece is different in its treatment in terms of the use of color and the expressiveness of lines and stains, which makes them even more unique and special.
