Contemporary Cuorecarpenito Terracotta White Vase Bibi Australe Collection

$485.91per item

About

The Bibi vase is part of the Australe collection It is made with a clay slab, that means, by folding a clay slab around a disc- shaped base thus to create the structure, which is then manually modelled for a long time with the help of set squares to achieve a regular shape. The shape remaining clearly somewhat irregular is indeed part of its charm. The Australe collection is a collection of 10 vases, all of them made of semi- refractory clays with natural colours, which I personally prepare The leading theme of the collection is the exploration for simple geometric shapes with a primitive look. The intent is that to recall the same amazement that man may have felt in the early days of evolution when discovering the purity of geometric shapes. The Bibi vase stands out for its remarkably harmonious and decorative personality. Its recurring decoration spiff it up as a lace “ante litteram”. It is made of semi-refractory white clay with chamotte (grog), and the gap between its rough surface and its delicate appearance generates a lovely atmosphere. Bibi because she is as white as the butter; Bibi because she is feminine, and she loves to be beautiful.

About the Maker

CUORECARPENITO

Claudia Carpenito is a ceramic artist with a past as a restorer and creator of cultural projects. After training in the atelier of the sculptor Graziano Pompili and modeling courses with master potters, he carried out a personal research oriented towards abstraction, choosing to "dress" an object of common use, the vase, through this language. The vase understood as a pure concept, an archetypal form that returns in epochs and cultures, with its very precious load of symbols, legends and dreams. Measuring herself with the material and transforming it into a sculpture, is what Claudia does and continues to do without stopping to learn, finding her own style made up of simple and geometric shapes that she loves to compose harmoniously. Whether in terracotta or ceramic, his collections show the sensitivity developed by the artist after many years of working in contact with ancient and contemporary works of art, in which he was able to blend with medieval wooden sculptures, seventeenth-century paintings, multi-material works that have become the guidelines of the Cuorecarpenito brand. The main study carried out in recent years was that of the creation of one's own alphabet where nothing was random but a long formal and chromatic research work on enamels, in which color was never intended as a decoration, but, on the contrary, enamel. it has become a structure and a founding element that reveals the truth of form.
