Rattan and ceramic vessels
Portafori is a series of vessels made of rattan and ceramic, where classical shapes are translated into objects with a timeless and sculptural aesthetic.
The collection celebrates the humble beauty of ancient baskets through the precious know-how of skilled Italian artisans. It evokes a narrative rich with charm, where traces of the past are connected to new visions. The series carries the historical heritage and the symbolism of domestic and rural life as part of the feminine world: in ancient Greek times, baskets as the Calathus, a top hat shaped one, were used by women to collect and carry goods such as wool, flowers and fruits.
Tribute to ancient techniques, each Portafiori conveys precious actions such as preserving, holding, beautifying.
