Charming pieces to serve
I love handmade things. I find it very special to serve a lovingly prepared recipe in a handcrafted dish, enjoy a good wine in a clay glass or present a special appetizer in a unique bowl.
Wherever I go I am always on the lookout for this type of product to be able to enjoy them in moments of tranquility, to make any moment a special moment (I confess that my eyes shine every day when I pick up that cup, that bowl, that glass... that I bought in that market, in that workshop -I remember the reason why I bought each one), or to be able to offer an original presentation in special meals. I also love giving these types of products. It is an original and different gift that always makes a good impression, since they are unique and very personal pieces.
At home we already have many handmade ceramic utensils but when I discovered the work of Pols Ceramic through Patricia from Sabores y Moments , I knew instantly that I wanted to meet Gloria in person and see some of her creations in her workshop. Gloria is a very friendly and approachable person, and it didn't take long for us to talk about offering her products in our store.
The Pols Ceramic workshop is a very special and personal corner in a very quiet area of Barcelona. There, next to a bright sideboard, Gloria works the pieces manually on her lathe and bakes them in two steps, at 1020ºC and 1260ºC, to obtain pieces with a resistant and high-quality finish .
The pieces that Gloria manufactures are very functional , designed for daily use, with a simple design but at the same time very natural and warm. In addition, being handmade, each piece is unique and bears the personal stamp of Gloria's hands and work. Imperfections are part of the art of making things with your hands , resulting in the perfect imperfection.

I hope that this new collection transmits to you everything that it transmitted to me the first time I saw it, it was a crush! In my opinion, it is well worth investing in these types of pieces, since they are ideal for more relaxed or special moments. They are also a perfect gift, giving something handmade is always a success.
