Description

Ossa is a Collection of Sculptural Vases entirely crafted and decorated by hand.
The ceramic pieces have been modeled together by Chiara and Francesco (ccontinua+mamt) simultaneously sculpting them.
Expanding the storytelling on a volumetric dimension, this hand building technique allows to achieve an enduring sense of malleability, and the resulting forms appear to be in a constant state of flux, resembling “unfinished” animal creatures.
The porcelain’s surface treatment evokes the texture of bone, while the glossy finish accentuates their volumes.
The porcelain drawings by MAMT delve into the intersection of human nature and the natural world, seamlessly merging humanity with plants and animals. They appear imprinted in the ceramic, akin to ink beneath the skin, like a tattoo.
This conceptual fusion creates a timeless, cyclical world devoid of a discernible beginning or end, taking us on a journey back to our origins.

The collection is crafted entirely by hand, ensuring that each piece is one-of-a-kind. This means that every vase in the collection is unique, featuring slight variations.

About ccontinua+mamt Visit Showroom →

ccontinua+mamt is the result of the collaboration between Chiara Caselli and Francesco Carrasso, an Italian creative duo based in Amsterdam. With a complementary and multidisciplinary approach, they develop projects in various fields, from painting and tattoos to ceramics and textiles. The inspiration for their ceramics works comes from Chiara’s profound passion for working with clay and porcelain, blended with Francesco's artistic and figurative intervention, giving birth to their "tattooed ceramics". With them, they intent to explore on clay the art of hand-poke tattooing, a technique that has been an integral part of Mamt artistic journey for years. The materials they choose to work with serve as a medium for expressing a narrative rooted in the poetry of a dreamlike imagination conveyed through primitive and folkloristic storytelling. Moving beyond the boundaries that separate art and design, they explore the contemporary worldas a reflection of social patterns, needs, and aesthetic values. The outcomes consist of mystical spaces and decorated objects that, akin to amulets, elicit emotions and memories in the viewer, while also fostering connections between individuals and their surroundings.
