Provocative and Surreal Object
The ceramic vase Shaky was born as a provocative and surreal object. It is an abstract presence, characterized by a clear geometry, placing it outside of time and a specific space. A cylindrical volume, elongated, bends and, describing a semicircle, draws a U‐turn designed by Gianluca Sgalippa.
But one of the two legs does not touch the ground plane: in addition to interrupt a perfect geometry, this asymmetry generates a feeling of instability. Not surprisingly, in English “shaky” describes a person having difficulty in walking and standing. The balance of the vase is guaranteed by a metallic weight placed on the bottom of the other leg. The flowers are inserted into the slot at the top of the curve and can be housed either in one or the other leg or in both. via
