Gumdesign: Espressioni duotidiane (Expressions daily) ceramics

Nice set of ceramics, with an albeit strange rational.

Quoted rational from the Gumdesign site translated from Italian
2011 / In the logic of “expression” (the smart object looking for a subtle dialogue with the man, the “sign” minimum, “the expression” that is characteristic of the human translated in question) here is the birth of the collection, through a simple manual cutting.
The vessel (reminiscent of an amphora, archetypal elements of history and tradition) from which all 6 take shape container is made of clay and treated entirely with the slip, the upper edge and the inside will hand enameled in white polished, the series comes from a reflection on the state of mind of being human that is transmitted by the facial expression.

These changes of expression of the human face can be translated to the object through small signs that completely changes the very essence of the vessel, formally and functionally (by flower vase centerpiece, a fruit bowl and jug).
