0 The MULTIFUNCTIONAL "S-POT' STONEWARE COLLECTION By Maddalena Selvini

Combining warmth – both physically and aesthetically. Maddalena Selvini has created a set of pots and objects that can be piled together on the same fire for cooking or warming up the stones. “Pietra Ollare”, is the material being used, which is specific soapstone from Valtellina, Italy. Each piece is handmade according to, as she puts it, an old craft that is slowly being forgotten.

These pots are naturally lubricated (from the talco), which not only feels nice to the touch but also keeps its warmth for a long time. Maddalena also states on her site:

For this reason these pieces can be spread around the house as warm objects for the body. Because of the properties of this stone I could use the sand left over by the lathe to create a new kind of stoneware and glaze. Therefore nothing gets wasted and plates, cups and teapot become part of the S-POT. With this project I hope to bring the intimate feeling of a stove back into our homes.
