Portal vases

Portal vases

Designed by Christian Haas 


These series of oversized Barro Preto vases are hand pressed by the craftsman to create a series of deformations to a cylindrical form. The designer Christian Haas and craftsman António Marques worked together to refine what it means to be “hand formed”, resulting in a new technique of form making where every piece is unique. The natural darkness of the Barro Preto reflects minimal light, creating the sense of a black portal. Like a portal through time, each vase connects the ancient craft of making Barro Preto together with modern contemporary design.
