by Sam Baron, Walter Usai and
Inspired by the Carnevale rituals in which masked men fight, march and generally wreak havoc, dressed in heavy loud bells to scare away demons and bad harvests, Sam Baron has created a sonorous vase. Its shape is inspired by simple, ancient Nuragic vessels, and its side is covered with the same hand-shaped bells used in these ceremonies. In collaboration with the ceramicist Walter Usai and bellmakers Floris Campanacci (both fifth generation artisans), the Talisman Vase stands in contrast to its mismatched twin, the Abundance Vase.
