Analogia Project– push ceramic towards the limits of experimentation (literally). “Booming Vases” by Andrea Mancuso and Emilia Serra in collaboration with master Italian potter Alessio Sarri, show its consistency, heaviness and fragility in the form of exploding vases.
Geometric blocks of white refractory ceramic were sculpted and colored while the clay was still fresh. They were then “exploded” and that moment was fixed in the matter.

These vases have been created by Alessio Sarri, who has collaborated with artists and designers like Matteo Thun and Ettore Sottsass. The concept of “wrong ceramic”, using unconventional techniques and materials, comes precisely from the maestro of the Memphis movement that Sarri and Analogia borrow.

Unlike traditional ceramic processes, these vases were made with thick pieces of clay, a combination of ceramic and porcelain that was colored before the pieces were dried and cooked. As Sarri explains, they were manufactured without considering the material’s limitations, but rather by following an experimental method, through a series of trials and by establishing relations of cause and effect. “Booming Vases” is the result.
