Client: Grestel

We have worked with Grestel since their very early days and are full of admiration for how they have grown into a large producer of quality stoneware. They are located on Portugal's Green Coast and we looked close to home for the design inspiration. The Douro valley is the main wine growing region in Portugal and it was the terracing hugging the contours of the steep hillsides above the Douro river that we worked with for the design. Grestel are great with glazes and we took full advantage of this to highlight the relief modelling.
