Description

Portafiori is the starting point of research on the object “vessel” as a carrier of heritage values translated into celebrative sculptures. The series of vases, made of rattan and ceramic, celebrates the humble beauty of ancient baskets through the precious know-how of skilled Italian artisans.

It is inspired by the domestic and rural life in the feminine world in ancient Greek times, where baskets as the Calathus – a top hat-shaped one – were used by women to collect and carry goods such as wool, flowers, and fruits. Tribute to ancient techniques, each Portafiori conveys precious actions such as preserving, holding, beautifying.

The vessel collection is entirely hand made in Italy. Its imperfect nature is part of the unique narrative it carries.
