Analogia Studio’s “Booming Vases” are the result of a collaboration with master ceramist Alessio Sarri. The aim of these objects is to explore two opposite essential elements of our existence: air and matter, which respectively embody fragility and power. Following an experimental methodology, pure geometrical shapes of white refractory ceramic were exploded when still fresh, and then left to dry and then cook, following a traditional ceramic process. The moment of explosion is therefore fixed in the matter, resulting in a block of colored ceramic that reveals its intimate white texture. Ettore Sottsass defined “wrong ceramic” as ceramic works that he produced using unconventional materials and processes. “Booming Vases” follow suit: they were made without thinking about the material’s limits, but rather by trying, testing and establishing new cause-and-effect relationships. The result demonstrates, at the same time, the matter’s heaviness and fragility.
