a fish swimming into a plate

bizarre is a collection of five limited-production ceramic objects designed by sam baron for sisley, as part of the ‘take your time’ exhibition at the fabrica features space in lisbon. the pieces are a re-invention of one of the main portuguese traditions with a contemporary vision of the old ‘savoir-faire’. drawing on forms from nature translated into classic vases and tableware pieces, bizzare is a futuristic approach to souvenirs inherited from the past. a series includes hybrid creatures such as a vase hosting a family of swans or a plate with a fish swimming in it.

the ceramics are made by hand and produced by olfaire in caldas da rainha, portugal. they will be on show until october 10th, 2009 at the sisley store, rua garrett 112-118, lisboa.
