TerracottaPere Alvaro

The Terracotta Museum, located in La Bisbal de L’Empordà, in Girona (Spain), is part of the national network of Science and Technology Museums of Catalonia (MNACTEC). Its program of temporary exhibitions (3 per year) needed a catalog that could be expanded as new exhibitions were inaugurated. To this end, we created a folder that emulates a ceramic block in different colors and includes a ceramic piece made for each season. We found in SIRO COLOR the material that allowed us to emulate the ceramic block and the commemorative piece with a dry embossing. The 700 g/m² weight of the material provided the desired consistency. The thickness helped us to reproduce the dry embossing very successfully. The color matched the properties of the different ceramic clays. We presented the first three volumes of the collection with a fourth in Raspberry (red) in the design process.
