Casa Cecu is the ceramics studio of Turkish artist Dilara Harmanci. Growing up in a family of textile makers, the Istanbul native was quickly drawn into the artistic sphere where she explored photography and painting before turning her hand to clay. Now based out of a dedicated studio in Galicia – a region in Spain’s northwest – Dilara creates bold, textured ceramics with sculptural appeal. Her artistic process is entirely by hand and is largely improvised: according to the artist, she prefers to start with a blank slate and let the design appear in a raw and imperfect form. The result is a collection of highly unique tableware with exaggerated forms and dramatic colours and glazes, which she mixes herself. Discover our selection from Casa Cecu, now on Smallable.
To mark its 15th anniversary, Smallable created Céramique Lab as a means to shine a spotlight on inspiring ceramists and their artisanal know-how.
