Anfora Vase

by Maria Paola Piras

€ 740 / €1220

Maria Paola studies ancient forms of vessels found throughout the island and then reinterprets them - choosing a specific mix of clays for each form.

 

Each shape is painstakingly created by hand using the coil technique and then baked in a wood-fired clay oven. Rather than using glazes, she either stone polishes her pieces (creating a mystical, almost metallic finish) or treats them with a series of waxes.

The Anfora Vases are inspired by the shapes of classic Sardinian water urns from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.

Materials: 

Wood-fired mixed clay with beeswax finish

Med W 31 cm - D 30 cm - H 32,5 cm

Large W 45 cm - D 42,5 cm - H 43 cm
