Introducing a vase that is not just a vessel but a narrative—inspired by the traditional molds used in slip-casting. Lucas Huillet, an artisan designer who effortlessly bridges the gap between disciplines, has once again played with references to conceive an object that narrates a story. This piece, created with meticulous precision, features two identical stoneware forms connected by a delicate line of nylon thread, suggesting unity, contrast, and the delicate balance of nature and craftsmanship.
Lucas’ dedication to storytelling through design is evident in this creation. As with all his pieces, the vase reflects a dance between design sketches and the tangible material, a testament to his iterative creative process. Since 2019, his studio has been at the forefront of crafting ceramic objects that aren’t just aesthetically pleasing but also sustainable. The materials, chosen for both their visual allure and technical attributes, are conscientiously sourced based on geography, reinforcing his commitment to the world we inhabit.
This vase, like many of Lucas’ works, invites introspection. It is reminiscent of his unique exploration during his diploma phase, where he delved deep into his practice, resulting in a project that juxtaposed BDSM practices with artisanally crafted design objects. With every glance at this vase, one is reminded of Lucas Huillet’s journey—a confluence of artistry, sustainability, and a touch of avant-garde.
