Iridescences is a collection of four ceramic vases and bowls. All the objects are finely crafted, yet each has its own specific aspect on the surface: each was conceived as a blank canvas challenging the very rare and time-consuming lustre technique. Of ancient Middle-Eastern origins, this special way of glazing ceramics was brought to splendour in the Umbria region in the 15th century. Thanks to a special blend of metallic salts, and to a special firing, incredible iridescent and chromatic effects are created. This technique requires great skill and dexterity, and only a few ateliers can nowadays master it.
