Vase with leaves

Vase with leaves

Martín Azúa continues exploring the relationship between ceramics and nature. The project began in 1999, when for the first time he left porous ceramic vases in the River Urederra in Navarra in order to collect “the natural stain”. Lichens and small plants settled on the vase showing that nature is capable of representing itself.
Ceramics has a great potential for innovating since whether it is from the material, technique, form, concept or collaboration with craftspeople, it is a unique experience that reconciles me with the objects.
