elena salmistraro's playful ape-like creatures for bosa at maison et objet

 

maison et objet: these ape-like creatures in saturated hues are part of elena salmistraro’s latest collection presented in paris for bosa called ‘primates’. the set of fine vases in ceramic has been created to remind us of the delicate relationship between man and ape. their playful appearance, combined with the colored glazes and precious metals make up the perfect blend as they seduce with their vital force.

comprised of six pieces that were showcased at maison et objet, ‘primates’ by elena salmistraro reference three different monkey types: the mandrill, belonging to the family of african cercopithecidae; the golden monkey, cercopithecus kandti, belonging to the family of african cercopithecidae; and debrazza’s monkey, belonging to the family of african cercopithecidae. the ape is the animal that best evokes man, in body shape, expressions and movements. this powerful similarity to man is what makes it fascinating and what inspired the creation of the vases, whose soul is encompassed in the details and colorful textures.
