This is my dream as an interiors blogger! Recently I was allowed to have a nose around a ceramic workshop on the outskirts of Barcelona – the home of Apparatu. Their ceramic lamps and home accessories are all made by hand here on-site, which includes moulding, firing, painting and glazing. It’s truly a family affair: Xavier Mañosa runs the show with the help of several family members, including his father (pictured top left carrying a large geometric lampshade). A couple of weeks ago a bunch of journalists/bloggers (including me) rocked up in the sweltering Barcelona heat to watch the team bringing their beautiful lampshades to life in real time.
