21st Century Ceramic Mitti Collection Set of 3 Hand Painted Glazed, Italy

$2,800.29per set

About

Mitti means "soil" in Hindi. The collection is designed as returned from a trip to India. The rounded movement is reminiscent of the stepwell, an architectural landmark designed to fill and empty during the passing of the time and the changing of the seasons, allowing access to the water no matter how high or low the water level in monsoon-dependent India. The Mitti Vases collection has been presented at the Milan Design Week Fuorisalone 2021 edition. It explores different surfaces, porousness and roughness using unfinished stoneware that feels like sand to the touch. In collaboration with Bottega Vignoli, the outer vase pattern is the result of a special technique. The latter consists in firing in reduction creating iridescent reflections making each object, painted with metal oxides, even more unique. Each piece is slowly crafted with machinery and hands, silently negotiating two contradictory elements, such as stoneware and 3D printing. One of a kind and singularly manufactured. Vases dimensions: Small 13 x 13 cm Medium 20 x 20 cm Large 19 x 32 cm.

About the Maker

Fornice Objects

"Fornice" in the Italian dictionary of architecture represents the light passing through the arches. Just after graduating University of the Arts, Italian Spatial Designer Chiara Ravaioli gave light to her project, Fornice Objects, which explores the link between materials research and the use of latest modeling software applied to analogue printing techniques. She uses fast, repeatable and rigorous technology to make bold yet ethereal statements. Despite the fact that it is made using technological machinery, the human component is prevalent. In fact, each piece is made uniquely, slowly with machinery and hands, silently negotiating two contradictory elements such as porcelain and 3D printing. In the lightness of its forms, Fornice Objects designs search for a reference in today's world; it is thus transformed into the story that is explored and then returned to its most essential materials, which at times become soft, bend, colour and come alive.
