Madras Vase (ABA 8) by Nuoveforme - exclusive


We're the only UK stockist of Nuoveforme, who produced this very special handmade Italian vase. 

Nuoveforme started up in 1993 by a group including the granddaughter of the great ceramicist Alvino Bagni, whose work inspires their output and production values. 

The beautiful Madras vase is the result a very complex production technique starting with vertical embossing, created by hand with the use of a comb-like tool. The unique surface recalls the texture of a fabric. The stunning original design lives in the Bagni archive; this 21st century version has a new chromatic palette.
The design is made with a hot wax resist (an ancient technique that enables a major precision in the drawing if compared to standard wax resist) and then it is filled piece by piece with coloured shiny transparent glazes according to a pre-defined sequence.
After firing, a black patina is given overall to highlight the beauty of the pattern.

Vase with embossed stripes and shiny coloured transparent glazes on raw matt black background.

Approximate dimensions: 31xm H x 16cm D
