Brick is the latest object d’art to embody Ashley’s ongoing fascination with reinventing everyday objects through new materials and expert craftsmanship. Its simple rectangular geometry follows the exact dimensions of a standard clay brick used for masonry since the beginning of time. To recreate it in stoneware, Ashley sought out Canadian-born ceramic artist and sculptor Alissa Coe to craft the bricks as hollow forms using plaster moulds and a slip casting technique. Each brick is handcrafted at Coe’s studio located in a stone farmhouse in rural northern Italy.

Available in four warm hues, the unglazed bricks are effortlessly versatile in creating moments throughout the house. While individually, each quietly adds a new elevation or spatial pause to a bookshelf, mantlepiece or credenza, they are also impactful when displayed in groupings, to be collected, stacked and rearranged like building blocks, echoing their traditional architectural function.

Handmade in Piemonte, Italy, each brick is imprinted with the signature logos of Ashley Botten Design and Alissa Coe Studio.

Available in a an unglazed finish in four sublime hues: cloud, chalk blue, petal pink and sage.
