Settiu Vessel

by Maria Paola Piras

€ 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.

Settiu Vessel is a geometric reinterpretation of a Nuragic vase found in a tomb in the town of Gonnosfanadiga.

Materials: 

Wood-fired mixed clay, stone-polished with beeswax finish

Width 41 cm - Depth 36 cm - Height 20 cm
