Created by Antoine Carboué, from the publishing house Les Crayons Noirs, in collaboration with the Brazilian collective La Famiglia, Bombe is a series of artisanal objects fashioned in porcelain from Limoges, France—an original collection of pieces in a numbered and limited edition of sixty. With Bombe, we brought together two distinct universes: street art and fine art—with a surprising combination of freedom, creativity, and transgression.

Bombe is created by fusing the graffiti writer’s famous tool—spray paint, or translated into French slang, bomb—with kaolin, the unique material used to create porcelain. We wanted to blend a modern tool linked to artistic expression with a traditional and fine material, as well as a certain savoir-faire and art de vivre. With Bombe, we hope to promote a close collaboration between the Brazilian artists of La Famiglia and the French artists of Les Crayons Noirs, in order to create an object that will be part of the reinvestigation of Brazilian art and the renewal of porcelain craft. This intercultural approach has inspiredour concept.
