Price Upon Request

Exhibited at Design Miami/ 2023 A fusion of glass and copper, borne from the embers of a wood fire. Enamelling, an ancient art form with its origins traced back to the illustrious Mughal era in India, takes centre stage in the Esmal Collection. Passed down through generations, skilled artisans handcraft each object using age-old methods, ensuring that their beauty and quality remain unparalleled. The true marvel of this particular process, developed by æquō and Florence Louisy, unfolds when the carefully crafted pieces are placed within a grand, crackling wood fire. The intense heat causes the powdered glass to melt wildly and meld harmoniously with the copper. As the flames dance around, the copper acts as a canvas and the glass fuses with the metal, creating a mesmerising texture. Every step in the enamelling process requires precision and expertise. The artisans deftly control the firing process, adjusting the temperature and duration to achieve the desired effect. This fusion of glass and copper is an alchemical wonder of India’s rich cultural heritage, turning raw materials into timeless pieces of art preserving its artistic legacy for generations to come. The Esmal Collection extends its allure beyond smaller objects, featuring ongoing furniture pieces, each contributing a touch of singularity to any living space. These pieces are more than just artistic expressions of contemporary design; they serve as living testaments to India’s unique techniques, the signature of our gallery. Craftsmanship : Enamel on Copper, Alibaug.
