At Maison et Objet 2014, Spanish designer Jaime Hayon presented his latest series of ceramic pieces for Italian company Bosa. Made entirely by hand using artisanal crafting techniques and laboratory-controlled glazes, the collection of work ranges from wall sculptures, side tables and miniature figurines meticulously enriched with precious metals decorations.
Living cultures that have impressed me and I wanted to reinterpret their spirit with my vision and with the hand of bosa have become wonderful sculptures by outstanding quality,’ says hayon. ‘for “maskhayon” I was influenced by my own world, and by my recognisable iconography, which I cultivated during my last 12 years of work.’
‘A table-top sized sculpture that symbolizes the importance of an optimistic approach to what lies ahead. The ‘Hope Bird’ stands proud and straight with a dynamic watch-out position toward the horizon, inviting us to reflect on the importance of staying positive to what the future may bring.’ – Jaime Hayon
