SANDVITA is a story about empathy.
In 1999 I visited a pottery factory in Vietnam. Looking at the production of outdoor pots‚ I was amazed by the number of steps in the process. After making the pots in clay they had to be carried to a spot to dry, after that into a tunnel oven, after burning the pots they had to be carried to a another spot for painting and glazing etc. Realising that this was just the beginning of the pots being carried around, I decided that all outdoor pots that I designed from that point onwards would have handles. The handles are a nice design feature and make it easier to handle the big pots in production, transport, sales and in the home.
