SAMBA Spice Shakers – inspired by “maracas” the native percussion instrument of Latin America. SAMBA’s tactile shape invites to be explored and just like maracas, the shakers become percussion instruments when in use. Apart from its visual aesthetic the design aims to awaken a multitude of senses: our sense of touch, the sense of hearing and the sense of smell and taste. SAMBA was short listed for the British Ceramics Biennial Awards 2009. It was also shown internationally in various exhibitions including “Königstraum und Massenware – 300 Years of Porcelain” at the Porzellanikon in Selb, Germany.
