Violet Lacquered Ceramic Booming Vase

About the Item

The vases are the result of a collaboration between the designers duo Analogia Project and the master ceramist Alessio Sarri, main ceramist for Ettore Sottsass' works. The aim of these objects is to explore two opposite essential elements that make our existence: air and matter, power and fragility. Pure geometrical shapes of white refractory ceramic have been exploded when still fresh. The process of making them followed an experimental methodology. Afterwards, they have been left drying and then cooked, following a traditional ceramic process. The moment of explosion is therefore fixed in the matter. The result is a block of colored ceramic exploded showing its intimate white texture. Ettore Sottsass defined ‘wrong ceramic’ some ceramic pieces that he did by using unconventional materials and processes. These vases could be also defined ‘ wrong ceramic’: contrary to the standard process, they have used very relevant thickness, they put together ceramic and porcelain, they have been colored when still fresh. As Sarri explained, they have been made without thinking about the material’s limits but with an experimental approach, by trying, testing and establishing new cause and effect relationships. The result shows at the same time both the matter’s heaviness and fragility. The vases are produced by Alessio Sarri Ceramiche. Unique.
