Tableware conceived for the 19th Biennial Exhibition of Sardinian Arts and Crafts

Sassari (Italy), 2009

Fruit basket and dishes, table centrepieces. These Objects represent an attempt to redeem cork – natural and ancient material (of which Sardinia is extremely rich) having endless potencialities – from the mortifying and nearly sole role of material for touristic souvenirs within which limits it is nowadays banished. The dishes, in both their square and round version, feature a sequences of waves, the depressions of which may hold different kinds of fruit, while the basket – devoted to take oranges, grapefruits or lemons – consists of a deep vase supported by an oxidized steel ring. All these objects have been turned by the skilful craftsman Salvatore Sanna, from Senorbì (Cagliari).
