Evdokia Savva is a young Cypriot designer and ceramist, who recently graduated from a two year full-time MA course in Design Ceramics at Central Saint Martins, with Distinction.
Her current work aims to sensitively revive the traditional terracotta tableware of Cyprus with a new aesthetic drawn from the traditional context. This project introduces a contemporary terracotta tableware range for the everyday, for the domestic Cypriot market and the newly engaged international diasporas. The key aspect of the series is the undercut, which works both as a functional element as well as an aesthetic feature. The Undercut Terracotta Tableware Service exists in two ranges: Simple Classic Undercut White and an evocative range of subtle changes 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.
