Dalloun specialises in making beautiful tea bowls using terra sigillata.

“For several years my work has been directed towards exploring a 2500 year old forgotten technique : Terra sigillata. The making of slips with the finest clay particles allows the creation of satiny, shiny surfaces which are soft and waterproof. Numerous possibilities when firing and the endless variety of clays found in nature, give a wealth of colours and tones due to the presence of iron oxide in the clay.”
Dalloun almost only makes tea bowls.
