Our blacks have been inspired by the cultural icons of Spain.
For centuries, Black has evoked excitement and sophistication in Spain. The colours of flamenco dancers, Red and Black, arouse a sensual feeling … an inspirational excitement of our senses. This range features the sophisticated, rich, deep Blacks and Charcoals that adorn dancers in the streets of Toledo or Malaga every night, as the sun begins to set.
This extensive range also features a colour inspired by the unique Azabache Stone … one of the worlds most luxurious and attractive jewels, found in Northern Spain. This is an unstated jewel, featuring subtle reflective character and a dark Black undertone.
Merchants established a trading centre in Santiago during the 1600’s and to this day, jewellery that provide luck & protects from evil, is still given as gifts throughout Spain. For us, it inspires a remarkable Brick.
The Maplesa range features many versions of the ‘Negro’ colour range and a variation on Black, with soft hints of Charcoal or Ash are available. Each product features the character and personality we expect when naturally fired, high integrity clay products are required.
