"The Roseti collection features traces of grasses and twigs – memories of meadows and bushes left behind in the green glaze. My work often incorporates elements from nature, a traditional theme in many vases around the world. But I interpret nature as a reality that has always been shunned by "modernity". Modern design has its roots in machine-inspired geometric forms. Throughout its self-referential development, it has ignored the world around it, a vast world made of leaves, twigs, flowers and grass – a world where modernity is in fact absent. These traces of vegetation are an attempt to reach out from the closed world of design to a greater reality"
- Andrea Branzi on his new collection of vases available at The Gallery Bruxelles.
