My choices in the material reflect the idea of time and space – clay is a simple and everyday, raw material used by everyone.
Clay, however, is used in an all-encompassing way. Sun-dried or partly cooked over an open fire. Eventually, the clay disintegrates breaks down and returns to earth.
Which stories would they tell if inanimate objects could speak? The GAA Restaurant in Bangkok somehow hosts a weird stage production. In his new menu, which pays homage to India’s streets, the owner and chief chef, Garima Arora, looked for a unique set of bowls and plates to express its cuisine taste. She contacted, therefore, Aman Khanna, a ceramicist for Clayman.
The signature Khanna sculptures inspired five sets of clay serving dishes but did not design and refine them to match the kitchen before returning to the drawing board. “With a Crispy Brioche bite our Spicy Uni is served in a bowl with a twisted face that virtually reflects visitors’ emotion when they are morsel,’ Arora says. Bowls in several sizes are available and glazed to facilitate cleaning and operation. “The collection has taken us a few months to make,” says Khanna. before determining the correct size we started with a few samples.
Finally, we made the serving bowls handmade to accommodate and honour each dish in open and multifunctional clay heads,” explains Khanna. There is much emphasis on the presentation today when it comes to food and food. This kind of dish is truly successful. “The concept really thrills guests,” says Arora. Even before we introduce the dishes, when the bowls are on the table their faces are clear. You also want to know if you can bring your favourite people home!”
