The Topo Collection is as an exclusive line for Clayhaus Ceramics, a Portland-based husband and wife team specializing in modern handcrafted artisan tile. As second generation ceramicists, the Clayhaus duo offers a meticulously crafted, quality product that is equally sustainable and stunning.
This collection began as an exploration of three-dimensional organic forms that evolved into a playful relationship between micro and macro worlds. In separating the forms into layers, an imaginary landscape, or topography, began to surface. The result is a subtle play of the imagination- that one might, if only for a moment, envision a micro version of themselves scaling a vast and seductive terraced landscape, and emerge having gained an appreciation for the grander, patterned order at work.
