Atelier Saigon

Pair of Large Urns with Rope and Hoof Base Motifs

Vietnam, circa 2010

VAS 223

Description

Medium: Ceramic, patinated steel

Dimensions: 55 in high x 39.25 in diameter

Born of the collaboration between a Parisian antiques dealer and a rural Vietnamese artists' community, these impressive monumental urns are a testament to the value of craft and workmanship. Their traditional design and worn glaze suggest ancient origins, defying completely their contemporary creation and belying their creators' skill. Furthermore, the hoof motifs adorning the bases suggest something animal and primordial, contrasting with the elegance of the urns' forms.
