POLYVALENT SILVER CONTAINERS

 

OTTO (eight) is the shape seen from above of this pair of polyvalent  containers, entirely hand-made. Small anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures which when positioned on the edge produce a curious effect of scale, transforming these containers into vaguely metaphysical mini-architectures. By placing these figures it is possible to create different imaginary relationships between them, in which everyone can see a different story.
The desire to "animate" objects with human or zoomorphic figures, rooted in a long tradition of high craftsmanship, is here revisited in a contemporary version.
