Description

Conceived as textile pottery, “A rope in the shape of a vessel” reflects on form and matter, on the power of the abstract image of the object, which remains in our memory irrespective of the material with which it is made. During the creative process, the qualities of the object and its materiality are explored, while looking for new plastic possibilities of the cotton rope.

“A rope in the shape of a vessel” claims the use of a humble material and a simple process, while exploring its potential. With a single repeated stitch and delicate hand gestures, the pieces are molded in a process that reminds us of the ceramic coil technique. By joining the rope, the thread leaves its trace, creating a texture on the vessels surface.

Each vessel is unique and different due to the handmade process. Designed and made by Cristina Vallejo.

About the designer


ELSUR

ELSUR is a furniture and product brand founded in 2014 by Cristina Vallejo. Interested in the connection between humans and objects, her designs explore new possibilities of uses, methods, materials and shapes, having the Spanish culture as an inspiration. Every product created is an unique piece, made partially or entirely by hand, in collaboration with local craftsmen or by herself. Moving between design, crafts and art, each project is conceived with a different approach, with which to tell a story through the object itself that lasts in our memory. At ELSUR we support a contemporary design that combines craftsmanship and technology to manufacture one-of-a-kind, durable and of great quality furniture and objects. The work at ELSUR is complemented by the participation in exhibitions, to mention \"VIII International WTA Biennial of Contemporary Art \", Madrid 2019 , or specialized talks. ELSUR is reviewed in several publications, such as the 2019 guide \"Made in Madrid. Design and craftsmanship in the city\".

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
