1616 / CMA “Clay”
by Cecilie Manz

CMA Clay is a 47-piece porcelain dinnerware collection designed in close collaboration with porcelain manufacturer 1616/arita japan and three specially selected ceramic workshops located in the town of Arita. The finished set is the result of three years work, close dialogue, hundreds of hand-drawn sketches, 3D files, 2D drawings, mock-ups, 3D prints and countless porcelain prototypes. The product range is intended for both the Japanese and the European kitchen and includes assorted, stackable plates, dishes and bowls. The design is part severe, part soft, featuring flat, deep, low and tall pieces to create a complete collection. Arita is famous for its high-quality porcelain clay, with a remarkably pure whiteness. For this collection, two porcelain clays are used, the classic chalk-white porcelain and a raw, natural gray. The set is part glazed, part unglazed.
