About Burnt and Glazed

Burnt and Glazed was founded in 2016 by Sabine Skjødt Hansen and her husband Kirstian Skjødt Hansen. It started out as a small studio space and morphed into todays’ Burnt and Glazed.

 

Sabine’s background in Graphic Design and Textile and 6 years of experience working with pottery lends an experimental approach and aesthetic touch to the focal point for Burnt and Glazed.

 

Kristian and Sabine share the same passion for craft, quality, and food. Yet, the two have very different artistic visions. Their united approach results in beautiful yet durable everyday products that brighten homes and spaces with natural colours and patterns.

 

Burnt and Glazed’s designs are inspired by Italian heritage that embodies simple and beautiful shapes and classic ceramics.

Brand Ethos

Burnt and Glazed make beautiful tableware in a timeless design. All products are handmade in Denmark and Italy and the founders have a strong passion for craft and quality.

Burnt and Glazed just recently started their sustainable journey, therefore, they are marked as a ‘Work in Progress’ Brand.

 

 

The comarché framework

Product lifecycle

Brand sustainability

Burnt and Glazed is a pottery based on the core essence of slow-made and handmade. The pottery is made from Terra Cotta Clay. “Tera Cotta” (Italian for ‘cooked earth’) is red burning earthenware that has been made by indigenous cultures for centuries.

Sabine and Kristian, owners of Burnt and Glazed, share the same devotion to craftsmanship and quality. And with their pottery, the two create beautiful and durable everyday products.

Brand Ethos

The pottery is handmade from natural materials and together they pursue responsible production and consumption ensuring the efficient and sustainable use of natural resources.  

As Terra Cotta is fired at lower temperatures than traditional stoneware, it also significantly reduces energy costs (but financial and environmental) compared to other ceramics.

The Comarché Notes

We believe there is something very beautiful and genuine about handmade products. Combine this with soft, neutral aesthetics and you’ve got yourself a very nice base for your next home-cooked meal!

Sustainable highlights on brand level

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
