Description

Cor is a handmade ceramic vase produced by Tot Cor Project in Barcelona. Pepa Reverter is the creative mind behind the design of this object. The vase Cor takes its inspiration from the Shiva flower vase made by Ettore Sottsass in the 1970s when Europe was experiencing an important cultural revolution. At that moment, the aim was to reclaim sexual liberty, but now, having concluded that phase, we need to take the next step. It is time to take up the key values that constitute humanity in all its richness: love, kindness, compassion, ethics, respect, generosity and solidarity.

The heart is the age-old emoticon par excellence, to say I love you. Tot Cor is also a solidarity project that extends far beyond this vase. Tot Cor is a charitable, collaborative art project and is driven by generosity and fine sentiments. A heart-shaped vase made with feeling to remind us that there is good on the world. Its mere presence brings the best out of us.

This version is signed in collaboration with the ceramist Rosa Cortiella, who enamels a beautiful landscape with these delicate colors.

About the designer


Pepa Reverter

She wants to live in a kinder, better world, so consciously creates work that inspire us to do so. She graduated in print making from the Llotja School of Applied Arts, followed by a degree in sculpture at the Barcelona Faculty of Fine Art, and eventually a Masters’ degree in video and TV production at the Universitat Politècnica, Barcelona. An academic exploration from some of the oldest forms of communication to the most modern, a journey linked by the timeless need to make sense of the world through art and stories. Along the way, she was fortunate to study under some of the great masters: working for Jaume Coscuella and Magí Baleta, engravers of the work of Joan Miró, Jaume Plensa, Xavier Grau, and Garcia Sevilla. She has worked across many mediums as a visual artist, illustrator, designer, ceramicist, professor, photographer, and videographer. Amongst her professional posts: working at TV3, illustrating for the International Herald Tribune, designing ceramic pieces for Bosa, design for BD Barcelona, and many other roles in between. She frequently collaborates with her partner, the powerhouse Creative Director Ramón Ubeda, with whom she created their stunning, shared, studio space in the @22 district of Barcelona. Her ability to both switch between and fuse many mediums lends her work substance and a fascinating depth. Her work is thought-provoking; it can be hard hitting with a distinct social message or, at times, ethereal and delicate and others exuberantly joyful, with a fierce, feminine energy. Creativity with purpose is what motivates her explorations with colour and form, creating a mood, invoking a memory, or stirring an emotional reaction as important as function. She captures the spontaneity and enthusiasm that is usually lost past childhood, maintaining a fresh, open-minded approach to each new project. Her studio is a place of joyful creativity where she continues to work across several mediums and disciplines with the brands, companies, and collaborators that move and inspire her.

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.
