Adobe Desk Tools in Terracotta

Set in a mold, decorated by hand, baked in an oven—sounds like cake, instead,  Adobe Desk Tools in Terracotta, a set of desktop organizers made from the age-old building material, a mixture of clay, silt, sand, and plant fibers. The five pieces are each in a different Italian clay for a subtle range of traditional terracotta hues. “I found interesting to develop household objects with the same technique used to build houses,” says designer Ilaria Innocenti. Nice!
