This Emirati Clay x Italian Murano Glass collection from Emirati designer Fatima Al Zaabi and Italian designer Matteo Silverio explores the analogies between different materials, crafts, cultures and heritages. It aims to enhance the craft dialogue by merging hand- and machine-made techniques.

Each piece uses parametric design and digital fabrication tools to create moulds, while artisans directly manipulate the glass and clay in the moulds.

This collection aims to demonstrate how tradition and innovation can coexist in the same project, which is why the daring experiment highlights how glass and clay can be elements of the same object.

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.
