for martín azúa and marc vidal’s ‘vase with stone’ project, craftwork and nature converge without artifice, where materials and artisan gestures are equally honest. this collection is a continuation of a work that azúa started in 1998 when he left porous ceramics in a river to capture the natural stain. this time, he claims the ability of an organic element to establish a dialogue with a traditional craft. the shapes interact with the rock in its plastic stage in order to evoke a one-of-a kind appearance where it seems as though the gem is imposing force along one edge of the surface. the material properties of this white clay exterior allows the distortions to acts filters for water. as such, they are not designed to contain flowers, but as a beautiful, decorative items. the pieces are signed and numbered and are delivered with the colera stones from costa brava and catalonia that distort them.martin azua warped ceramic vase with stone
