Appreciation towards Analogia Project for providing the following description:

“炸裂”花瓶乃是Analogia Project与意大利最有才华的陶艺家Alessio Sarri的合作结晶。花瓶创作探讨了两种必不可少的对立类型:空气与物质、力量与脆弱。

用白色的耐火陶瓷做成几何形状的花瓶,再把外表涂成彩色,然后使其局部发生微型爆炸,接着烧制成形,让爆炸的一瞬永远的被定格。鼓裂的彩色外表之下,白色的纹理清晰可见。突破材料的限制和常规思维模式,探究出并存的永恒与脆弱。Alessio Sarri Ceramiche已生产该花瓶。


The vases are the result of a collaboration with master ceramist Alessio Sarri (one of the most talented Italian ceramists, he collaborated with artists and designers such as Sottsass, Natalini, Thun).

The aim of these objects is to explore two opposite essential elements that make our existence: air and matter, power and fragility.

Pure geometrical shapes of white refractory ceramic have been exploded when still fresh. The process of making them followed an experimental methodology. Afterwards, they have been left drying and then cooked, following a traditional ceramic process.

The moment of explosion is therefore fixed in the matter. The result is a block of coloured ceramic exploded showing its intimate white texture.

Ettore Sottsass defined ‘wrong ceramic’  some ceramic pieces that he did by using unconventional materials and processes. These vases could be also defined ‘ wrong ceramic’: contrary to the standard process, they have used very relevant thickness, they put together ceramic and porcelain, they have been coloured when still fresh.

As Sarri explained, they have been making without thinking about the material’s limits but with an experimental approach, by trying, testing and establishing new cause and effect relationships.

The result shows at the same time both the matter’s heaviness and fragility.

The vases are produced by Alessio Sarri Ceramiche.
