Craft and design: Grogged Vessels by Sevak Zargarian explore the liminal space between craft and design by mixing craft and industrial elements and processes during the creation of decorative objects. In the case of the Grogged series, grog (fired ceramic pieces), is mixed with the process of reverse casting to control the inside of the ceramic vessels but leave the outside of them up to the peculiarities of the process. This result in the random pattern of the grog on the throughout the body of the vessels.

Classic cane baskets are all fine and dandy, but sometimes we just want some wickerwork in the shape of a tomato. Or an acorn. Or one ripe, solo grape. We stumbled across this Flickr page from the Abbe Museum in our online travels, and it sure is making us rethink what a basket should be. Hand-woven from sweet grass and birch bark, and embellished with shell and bone by clever Native American craftsmen, we can imagine toddling down to the market with a cob of corn on the crook of our arm, feeling pretty happy about life indeed.

Product, 2013 The white tiles are the result of collaboration with master ceramist Alessio Sarri (one of the most talented ceramists, he collaborated with artists and designers such as Sottsass, Natalini, Du Pasquier e Morrison). The surfaces reproduce accurately archaeological fragments and ruins from the Museo del Castello Sforzesco di Milano, Museo Civico Archeologico di Milano, and from Musei Capitolini di Roma. Shapes coming from different times appear on the white ceramic surface recalling us that the past is still living in the present time: the space of the exhibition tells our Story, that has always been in a close relationship with Art. Virtual digital models of the archaeological artefacts have been acquired by using a cutting age technique and the prototypes have been used as ceramic moulds: it is an original project that explores the relationship between design, archaeology and craftsmanship in an experimental way.
