His innovative work brilliantly consists of eye-catching products ranging from one-of-a-kind small tabletop lamps to floor lamps, chandeliers as well as vases.

“I simply utilize certain typologies to push the technical boundaries of what ‘can be done’ with traditional ceramic techniques while perpetuating a frozen state of transmutation and instability. 

A moment in which ambiguity takes over, laying the grounds for personal interpretations – are these growing or are they collapsing, is this stable or is it falling?” says Marcelo Suro.

The Pink Robots Won, a playful illuminating object in a mélange of refreshingly soothing pastel hues is at first, seamlessly slip cast in low-temperature ceramic. 

Additionally, it’s then skillfully glazed further in monochromatic tonalities to effortlessly accentuate the three different parts and elements that compose this extraordinary eclectic piece.
