The “Le Giare” Large Vase is made of red terracotta and is worked by hand on the lathe. With this project, we want to bring this type of artifact back to its original function for wine or water and pay homage to the ancient gestures of the Mediterranean table.

“Le Giare” are amphorae inspired by the ancient world, composed in the lower part by a classical form, while a more squared and contemporary form is taken in the upper part. To develop this characteristic form, “Le Giare” must be shaped in several pieces and joined together when the clay begins to dry, requiring great artisan skill.

About the designer

Domenico Orefice

Domenico Orefice’s work is based on respecting matter and its history, transcending the traditional distinctions between design, craftsmanship, and art. He seeks a distinctive form in the object, communicating the project in a clear and immediate way, and playfully re-examines the form and function of the object giving it new meanings. Passionate about Italian design icons, and with a graffiti and street art background, the designer creates his products as an outcome of a path that goes from the mind to the hands and, at last, to the eyes. All of this can be seen in pictures of his works, photo shoots which Domenico Orefice himself, as an art director, takes care of and through which he depicts the origin and imaginary of such works. His latest projects range from self-productions to limited editions which rediscover archaic materials, such as raw earth or cotton rag. These materials are used working side by side with artisans and changing them with new technologies and languages in order to create primitive-contemporary objects.

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.
