"Famille de Terre", is a collection of ceramic unique créations serving as shelves. Clément Brazil combines originality and functionality in those creations which are studied in order to allow an easy storage space thanks to its ingenious proportions. Conserving a brut and natural aspect, those ceramic furniture sculptures are inspired by the asymmetrical symmetries that can be observed in numerous natural landscapes. Called Famille de Terre, family of earth, each sculptural furniture of the series is a unique member of this diverse family: linked to each other by a visual harmony, each member has its own characteristics and distinguished character.
