Tiipoi’s Longpi Ceramic Kitchenware Collection

View all 7 Photos

A kitchenware range made with a ceramic blend from a remote Indian village.

Designed by London-based design studio Tiipoi in a collaboration with ceramicist Mathew Sasa, this ceramic kitchenware collection combines tradition and modern techniques. The cookware and bowls are all crafted from a unique ceramic material found in the village of Longpi, on the disputed border of two states in northeastern India. In this area, skilled artisans – including Mathew Sasa’s award-winning family of ceramicists – have been making black ceramic objects by hand using a special blend of river clay and ‘serpentine’ rock. For this collection, Tiipoi has combined handcrafted techniques with new technology like 3D printed molding. Thus, the line brings age-old tradition into modern kitchens and gives it a contemporary flavor.

The range of Longpi ceramic cookware features two pots, one pan, and two serving bowls. Perfect for slow cooking, the pots and pan suit both hobs and ovens. They are completely handmade by shaping the clay with the help of molds. Each product goes through a firing process at a low temperature without any glazing, which makes this series 100% biodegradable. The Tiipoi Longpi ceramic kitchenware includes Karipot in small and large versions, both with a lid and two handles. The Karipan features raised ridges, while the Karibowl bowls have a stackable design for more convenience. Photographs© Tiipoi.
