Frédérick Gautier is a French designer whose work is heavily influenced by brutalism. He has been making waves in the design world with his unique tableware line, FCK, for Serax. While his collection includes various items such as vases, teapots, and tea-for-one pots, his plates stand out with their rugged, concrete-like appearance.

Gautier's Process for Creating Concrete-Like Plates

Due to his fascination with brutalism, Gautier sought out a type of clay that resembles concrete after the firing process. Since launching his FCK line, his signature has adorned all of his creations working with this material. Gautier's process involves creating molds of his desired shape and casting the plates using this clay. The plates are then fired in a kiln at high temperatures, which gives them their concrete-like appearance and durability.

The Aesthetic of Gautier's Plates

Gautier's plates are minimalist, with a rugged texture and imperfections that add to their character. The plates have a natural and raw appearance that highlights the material and emphasizes the beauty in its simplicity. Gautier's plates are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them versatile and perfect for any occasion. They are also dishwasher safe, which makes them convenient for everyday use.
