GIVE SHAPE TO THE SOIL: a transversal project that connects the object with its territory and its landscape. It is dressed in its colours and textures. Each object is made and dedicated to the place where the material it is made of comes from, partially or entirely. Rocks, clays and minerals collected by Elena Pelosi as part of her research.
In this series of vases STONE FOREST SERIES also investigates the value of time, in an inter-semiotic exchange between languages and materials: a fossil forest with recovered and collected soils, in close connection with the land and in memory of its history.

Circulation of pieces unique limited to 50 copies per type. Each piece is made from a base and a modular corolla with patina. Each is a unique piece with an organic-irregular appearance vaguely reminiscent of a floral corolla, a blooming bud. Made of red clay with white and pink clay slip and reclaimed soils and iron powder (slight black grain punctuation) . It is rough to the touch and earthy in appearance, speckled in relief with a grainy black sand.


IT IS PROVIDED WITH CERTIFICATION, stamped and signed. A bag with the original wild clay in it is also supplied with the piece.
vase: h 911.5 x 24 cm
