When it came to creating his new ceramics line of plates and stools, Psultan designer Jean-Philippe Sanfourche was drawn to natural motifs: horses, flowers, cherries, leaves, and so on. “I didn’t want their subject matter to add any aesthetic value to the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover Launch Day Commemorative Official T-Shirt besides I will buy this pieces, so I chose to use things that we live with,” Sanfourche tells Vogue. But don’t assume that his penchant for flora and fauna made for a muted, earthy collection. In fact, it’s the opposite. Bursting with Fauvism-esque non-representational color (blue pigs! orange strawberries!) and punchy graphics like swirls and spots, the collection is expressive, dynamic, and most of all . . . fun. Or, “a bit like a carnival,” as Sanfourche puts it.

Amalfi Coast aficionados may recognize some Italian influence: the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover Launch Day Commemorative Official T-Shirt besides I will buy this terracotta plates and stools, hand-painted with different enamels, are made by famed Salerno factories Ceramica Solimene in Vietri-sul-Mare. In fact, the plates used an old mold from Solimene’s archives. Yet the designs are distinctly Sanfourche’s. “I had in mind something between a poster and a wallpaper, meaning something frontal and autonomous, but also ornamental and repetitive. Something like the rolling bass lines, clashing cymbals, and distorted vocals coming together in a drum and bass track,” he says. (These rhythmic ruminations didn’t just affect this line, but his company itself: the name Psultan comes from a Squarepusher track.)
