Valeria Vasi is a Barcelona-based ceramic practice that makes sculptural, defined vases. The entire process is undertaken by hand, except for the kiln where the final product is fired. Vasileva uses locally sourced clay and materials to create her pieces. The various styles of vases are available in terracotta and anthracite, which are glazed on the inside and the is clay left to its natural state on the outside, and also in a white clay that is finished with either a glazed or matte finish.
Valeria Vasi uses the striking shapes in the creation of the vases: a torus shape, U-shape, and a sphere with a long neck. The piece titled ‘Duo Vase’ is sold separately as one half with a round base and long stem, however, when viewed from the side, the design appears to be cut in half. The custom-made nature of Valeria Vasi means that each piece is unique, the vases themselves double as art pieces and convey the artist’s need to balance artistic expression with functionality.
Valeria Vasi is born from the fascination for the design of objects, sculptures, and visual art. Her pieces express the inspiration taken from design and art but they also convey the importance of finding the perfect balance of artistic expression, utility, and functionality.
Valeria Vasi’s pieces are hand-crafted in Barcelona which makes each piece unique and authentic.
