21st Century, Smoky Crystal, Gold Inlay, Abstract painting, Lacquered Vase

About

Rhapsodic vessel displaying an unconventional cylindrical design with an alcove housing an elegant smoky crystal sphere accent by Golem of Italy. The vessel has a suave charm due to the earthly colored lacquer tone and the lower part abstract ornament, all in satin finish. Two geometrical zones in gold foil have been created on the back of the vessel reinventing the tradition of embedding metallic particles in the fresh lacquer so characteristic of the Japanese lacquer art. The oyster mollusk with its pearl and the metal tubes of an organ are the inspiring image for this piece.

About The Maker

GOLEM Ceramics Design

View Profile
Established in 2015 by designer Mauro de Morais, Golem Ceramics Design is a collection of decorative lacquered ceramics that are hand-made. The state-of-art contemporary ceramics are coated in lacquer, which is a fascinating and very special material that requires technical and specialist knowledge. Lacquerware is a unique form of craftsmanship brought into the ceramics field to produce everything from everyday ornaments, decorative accessories to museum quality pieces. The craftsman who produces such ultramodern pieces is dedicated to the ancient Japanese lacquer tradition but also to modern developments which allow for the use of new materials or techniques that have mostly been self-developed. One of the main differences between a ceramic piece glazed in a kiln and a lacquered one consists in the time needed to obtain the finished piece. Glazed pieces are fired in one day whereas many weeks are needed for coating and decorating with lacquer, permanently maintaining the quality of a very delicate and crafted work. Golem reveals the art of lacquer, its mysteries and difficulties, the respect for the material and the honour of craftsmanship. The choice of lacquer is motivated by its unique and unrivalled qualities, its third dimension, depth, transparency and aesthetical pleasures which are deeply sensual.
