The Coarse Pottery Air-Humidifier is made from terracotta. It harnesses the power of its sustainable material to offer consumers an alternative to electric air humidifiers. It employs capillary action to moisten dry interior spaces.
Terracotta has been used in household appliances for natural cooling, heating, and evaporative methods. Its many functions are due to its porous organic composition. Students from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts teamed up with Shenzhen Changsen Trading Company designers to produce the non-electric air humidifier from clay.
The Coarse Pottery Air-Humidifier resembles a radiator made from clay. Users can add water to the humidifier's basin; droplets will gradually rise and evaporate through tiny cavities near the appliance's top, thereby moistening the air.
